Sake is pronounced sah-KAY.
Sake is an all-natural fermented alcoholic beverage made from rice, purified water, koji, and yeast. (Koji is a culture used in sake brewing, it breaks the starches in the rice down into fermentable sugars. It’s also used in tofu making!)
Technically Sake is not a rice wine, although it is a common misconception. The alcohol is a result of a conversion of sugars that have been converted from starch, as opposed to sugars from fruits as you find in wine.
Our sake is made with just four ingredients - rice, purified water, yeast, and koji and there are no added sugars, additives, or preservatives. The sparkling sakes are made by adding carbonation and natural flavor!
Because we love it! And Louisiana is the nation’s third-largest producer of rice, so it just makes sense.
Our Filtered and Unfiltered Sake are 14% ABV and one 8oz can is about the equivalent of two glasses of wine. The Sparkling Sakes are 6.5% ABV, each 12oz can is about the equivalent of a craft beer.
Yes, we do! However, it is still under construction and should be ready for you in Summer 2021.
The brewery is located at 634 Orange St, STE B. Taproom opens this summer!
Our sakes are available for purchase at major grocery retailers, bars, and restaurants in the Greater New Orleans area, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Houma/Thibodaux, Mandeville, and Covington areas. Don’t see it? You can ask your favorite location to stock it for you, and we thank you so much for your support!
We are distributed by Southern Eagle Distributors in the Greater New Orleans area, and by International Wine and Spirits in the Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Houma/Thibodaux, Mandeville, and Covington areas.
Our sakes are currently only available in can format. If we decide to offer them in kegs we will make an announcement!
We hope to expand very soon to neighboring regions and states! Want to see it in your area? We’d love to hear from you!
Unfortunately, local laws prohibit the shipping of alcoholic beverages.
We do! We are in the process of setting up our online store where you will be able to purchase a variety of apparel and accessories. Our taproom will have a full store and we expect that to completed this summer.

Yes and yes!
Sake pairs well with life! You can pair it with any food you like (we enjoy seafood pairings!) but we think it works perfectly as a stand-alone beverage.
We think high-quality sake (like ours!) should be served chilled.
