What countries make sake?

Sake is a traditional Japanese rice wine that has been produced in Japan for centuries. While there are other countries that produce rice wines, sake is unique to Japan and is considered an important part of Japanese culture.

While some countries have attempted to produce their own versions of sake, the production of sake is strictly regulated in Japan, and the process is deeply rooted in Japanese culture and tradition. As such, the vast majority of sake production still takes place in Japan.

However, there are a few companies that produce sake outside of Japan, particularly in the United States, Canada, and Australia. These companies often use traditional Japanese brewing techniques and ingredients, but the final product may have a slightly different flavor profile than traditional Japanese sake due to variations in climate and other factors.

New countries making sake include New Zealand, Sweden and Spain. New style sake breweries are forming in America. Same well known ones are Brooklyn Sake, Arizona sake, and Dassai is making a large new sake brewery in America. In Australia there is 'Melbourne Sake'.
