  TYPES OF SAKE  

JUMAI
The name means "pure rice". Junmai is sake composed of only rice, water, koji and sake yeast. No other ingredients or additives, such as alcohol or sugar, are added. The rice has been polished to 70% or less of its original size and used to brew. The sake character tends to have a full-bodied and slightly acidic
HONJOZO
In this sake, not more than 120 liters or raw alcohol per each metric ton of white rice and no glucose have been added during the brewing process. Added alcohol cannot exceed 25% of the total alcohol in the finished product. In the U.S. it isn’t legal to make Honjozo or to add alcohol to sake. Imported Honjozo is categorized into distilled spirits.The sake character tends to lighter than Junmai.
GINJO
Ginjo a special type of Junmai or Honjozo, and considered the highest achievement of a brewer's art. All the rice employed in brewing Ginjo must be polished to at least 60% of its original size. Dai-Ginjo is brewed with the rice polished to at least 50%. In many Ginjo, brewers use special yeasts in making Moto, and ferment the final mash very slowly at low temperature. This extra effort produces a sake that is lighter, with a clean taste and tangy flavor along with an aroma.
NAMA
Nama means "Draft sake". In this sake, fresh sake is micro-filtered unlike other sake that is pasteurized twice - once before aging and once in the process of bottling. Nama is fruity and fresh taste with pleasant aroma
NIGORI
Nigori -"Cloudy"- sake is unfiltered or roughly filtered so that some Moromi in the fermenting tank make it into the bottle. This sake has a milky white appearance. Nigori is bold with a sweet taste.
GENSHU
Genshu is undiluted sake. After filtration, the sake has an alcohol content of around 19%. Most of sake on the market has been diluted with water until the alcohol contents falls between 12 and 16%. Genshu is full-bodied with a rich taste.
