This is how the generation +55 years prefers to drink sake!

SakeIn Japan sake is served in several different ways. The older generation +55 years often drinks sake on weekdays and at special events.

During the week sake is typically served at the evening meal. How many glasses they drink depends on the percentage of alcohol. Generally speaking the percentage of alcohol in a bottle of sake is higher than in a bottle of wine.

As a rule of thumb if the percentage of alcohol in a bottle of sake is roughly the same as a bottle of wine the Japanese do enjoy a few glasses.

If the alcohol content is significantly higher and I am thinking of a bottle of booze the Japanese drinks small amounts of sake in the mug which is the size of a shot glass.

In the last newsletter of the year I will talk about how the younger generation prefer to drink sake.
