Fun Facts about Sake


Seimaibuai and premium sake

20% of all sake produced in Japan qualify as “premium” sake. In order to be called a premium sake, its Seimaibuai has to be at the value of 70% or above, meaning at least 30% of the rice has to be polished to get rid of excessive fat and protein.



Served cold or warm?

It is said that sakes with a stronger aroma such as Ginjo or Daiginjo are better enjoyed cold (~16°C) for a refreshing mouthfeel; those with a full-bodied taste such as Junmai sake or Honjozo are better enjoyed warm (~55°C) to enhance its aroma.


Know where your sake is from

The spring water (Meisui), rice and local craftsmen’s brewing techniques define the characteristics of sakes from different regions. For example, the cool climate of Hokkaido gives its sake a light and smooth texture; Kyoto’s famous soft water Fushimi Water grants its sake a delicate and elegant profile.


Served to world leaders at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2013, Ohmine Junmai Diginjo is brewed by the skillful hands of local craftsmen using Yamaguchi-grown rice “Yamada Nishiki” and “Benten spring water”.
