About Japanese Sake

Seeking out the finest Japanese sake in Melbourne? Gyoza Gyoza is here to make sure your quest is a fruitful one! Japanese sake is an alcoholic beverage brewed primarily from rice and water. It resembles white wine in appearance, ranging from almost transparent to slightly yellow. The 13%–17% alcohol content of many sake varieties is slightly higher than that of wine, but sake also has a mild taste with little acidity and bitterness.

Unlike wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in grapes, Japanese sake is produced by a brewing process closer to that of beer, where the starch is converted into sugars before being converted to alcohol.

There are a lot of different types of sake, with different rice and different handling after fermentation, and all of them have different characteristics and unique flavours.

We are known for our extensive range of Japanese beverages; our suppliers import sake from Japan, and we constantly update our sake list to ensure that we have the most choices of Japanese sake in Melbourne’s CBD and beyond.
