If you’re an alcohol enthusiast, here are a few bottles to add to your collection! If you’ve ever asked the question, “What are the best sake brands available?” before then you have definitely come to the right place! This list includes only the top of the line, more expensive brands of sake for the sophisticated pallet, including: Kubota, Ryozeki, Tateyama, Hakutaka, Hakubotan and Suminoe. Sake is a liquor of Japanese origin that is primarily made from fermented rice. Top Shelf sake includes only the best ones available; the term “top shelf” was derived from the fact that grocery and liquor stores only put these more expensive, higher-quality liquors on the top of the shelf in order to prevent people from stealing them. Middle and bottom-line products are usually not placed on the top. Because of its supreme quality, liquor in this category typically costs a lot more than traditional liquors; it’s usually not intended for every day drinking. Most of the time people only pull bottles like these out for special occasions. Just remember that you truly get what you pay for! Alcohol in this category usually doesn’t have that “bite” that most others have; the ingredients are higher-quality, and the aging process can be different as well.
