Water In Sake Making

- 80% of sake is water.

- Sake changes depending on whether hard or soft water is used during production.

- Most of Japan has soft water.

- Sake made with soft water will be clean and semi-sweet.

- Sake breweries are frequently established in areas known for their pure spring water.

- Miyamizu (Nada, Hyogo Prefecture) and Gokousui (Fushimi, Kyoto Prefecture) are two of the best.

- Iron and manganese content should be low in water to make good sake.
