Global Japanese Sake Market: Overview

Sake is a traditional rice-based alcoholic drink, and has gathered groundswell of interest across breweries in Japan for several generations. Strides made by rice production in Japan have supported the momentum to a large extent. Lately, Japanese sake has been gathering steam among people outside the country. Particularly, breweries brands based in the U.S. have begun appreciating the consumer prospects of Japanese sake. The alcohol content of Japanese sake is around 15 percent, and may increase to 17% in typical preparations. The sake finds use in numerous food recipes, and is also considered as a cultural drink for the Japanese population.

A number of Japanese sake varieties with varying flavors and taste have hit the market, in order to meet the changing consumer preferences. Makers adopt sake making processes for preserving particular flavors and aromas. Aside from the ordinary Japanese sake, key product types in the market are junmai, honjozo, junmai ginjo, and ginjo. Of all, junmai ginjo is likely to serve a prominent share in the global sake market.
