How do you pronounce Sake?

Sake is pronounced sah-KAY.

What is Sake?

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!)

Is Sake considered a Rice Wine?

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.

What do you mean when you say the sake is “all natural”?

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!

Why Sake?

Because we love it! And Louisiana is the nation’s third largest producer of rice, so it just makes sense.

How much alcohol is in your sake?

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.

Do you have a taproom?

Yes we do! However it is still under construction and should be ready for you in Summer 2021.

Where are you located?

The brewery is located at 634 Orange St, STE B. Taproom opens this summer!

Who is your distributor?

Can I get your sakes on tap?

Can I get your sake in my area?

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!

Can you ship me some of your sake?

Unfortunately local laws prohibit the shipping of alcoholic beverages.

Do you have any merch?

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.

Is it Vegan? How about Gluten Free?

Yes and yes!

What should I pair sake with?

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.

Should sake be served hot or chilled?

We think high quality sake (like ours!) should be served chilled.
