Giant Sake Casks, Meiji Shrine -  Sake is a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from rice. In Japanese, sake refers to alcoholic drinks in general. The Japanese term for this specific drink is Nihonshu, meaning "Japanese sake."
Sake is also referred to in English as rice wine. However, unlike true wine, in which alcohol is produced by fermenting the sugar naturally present in fruit, sake is made through a brewing process more like that of beer.  (image by John Lander)
