Sake is a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from rice. In the Japanese language, though, sake refers to any alcoholic drink 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.
