A must-see for those who like sweet sake! A list of light, sweet sake and how to choose it!

Do you like it "sweet" or "dry"?
When asked for a sake recommendation, I first ask the customer about their preferences.
It seems that many people prefer dry sake, but sweet sake is no less popular!
A sweet sake that is easy for sake beginners to try and is also popular with those who don't like dry sake .

Such sweet sake can be divided into two types: "light sweet" and "rich sweet."
On this page, we will introduce how to choose light, sweet sake and a list of light, sweet sakes carefully selected by our store .

[What is light, sweet sake?]
The sweetness of sake does not come from the sweetness of sugar, but from the sugars that come from the rice that is the raw material for sake . Light and sweet sake is characterized by its sweet yet refreshing taste .

[Key points for determining whether a sake is light or sweet]
The most useful reference for distinguishing sweet sake is the number called "sake meter value."
Sake meter value is a numerical value that represents the specific gravity of sake when the specific gravity of water is set to zero (±0).
Because sugar is heavier than water, the more extractive content there is, the - (negative) and the sweeter it will taste , and the less extractive content there is, the + (positive) and the drier it will taste. Although you cannot judge by numbers alone, we recommend checking the acidity and amino acid content in addition to the Sake Meter value.

[Brief explanation of each item]
・Sake meter value: the more negative the number, the sweeter the sake, and the more positive the number, the drier the sake.
- Acidity: The lower the number, the lighter the taste; the higher the number, the richer the taste.
- Amino acid content: The lower the number, the cleaner the taste; the higher the number, the richer the flavor.

If we judge based on these numbers, light and sweet sake has a large - (negative) value for Sake Meter and low acidity and amino acid content . However, the world of sake involves many different factors, such as aroma and taste, and it is true that it cannot be judged by numbers alone.

I like sweet sake, but there are so many types that I can't choose/I don't know because the numerical values ​​are not listed/Occasionally it's nice to have sweet sake, but I can't decide <br>In times like these, leave it to Isobe Liquor Store!
