Delving into the Origins of Japanese Sake
Tracing its origins back to 2500 years ago, Japanese sake is not just a drink but a testament to the nation's cultural richness. This brewed beverage has evolved with the times while holding onto traditional craftsmanship.
Unique in its creation, sake is brewed somewhat like beer but enjoyed in a manner akin to wine. Its growth in popularity is not only limited to Japan. Today, with numerous online shops selling fine wines and sake, you can taste this historical elixir in its various forms right in the heart of Hong Kong.
The Sweet Allure of Umeshu
Umeshu, or plum liquor, is another Japanese beverage that stands tall next to sake. With its fruity and sweet undertones, umeshu is crafted by steeping ripe ume fruits in alcohol. While younger than sake, umeshu has carved out its own space in the realm of intoxicating delights, winning hearts around the globe and in places like HK.
How Best to Enjoy Your Sake and Umeshu
Sake, with its diverse range from floral notes to rich umami undertones, can be savored in various ways. Some sakes, especially the premium types, are best enjoyed slightly chilled, which allows their complex aromas to shine. On the other hand, umeshu, with its sweet profile, is delightful on the rocks or even as a chilled dessert accompaniment.
Whatever your choice, the essence is to savor each sip, making the harmonious blend of rice, water, yeast, and koji narrate its story.
