GET TO KNOW SPARKLING SAKE

sparkling

Sparkling sake is a relatively new category that is certainly growing and shows no signs of slowing down. Every time I start with a sparkling sake at my tastings, people are surprised as I was when I first got into sake, and simply didn’t know it existed! Just like it’s wine counterpart, it’s a great way of starting a session or for celebratory occasions with its fresh and lively characteristics.

The geeky part; ethanol fermentation induced by naturally occurring or cultured yeasts converts sugars to alcohol and also produces heat and carbon dioxide hence a sparkling alcoholic beverage. With the right technique, the brewer can choose to keep the effervescence as they also can with wine. So why not opt for a sparkling sake next time instead of the default sparkling wine option.
