Are you intrigued by the elegance of traditional Japanese sake rice wine? Perhaps the tantalizing packaging and exotic names have sucked you in to the grasp of the sake goddesses, forever to hold you a slave to the delicate, but robust flavour sensations? Or maybe you just had some sake from Japan Centre before and like the taste?
Whatever the reason, sake is becoming a hugely popular drink all over the world, whether it is drunk warm in a traditional Japanese sake cup, or mixed with orange juice to make a modern take on the screwdriver cocktail – the sakedriver!
