Packaging design of a Traditional Japanese Sake BlackBamboo. Sake or saké (酒 (さけ sake?) /ˈsɑːkeɪ/, “sah-keh”) is an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin that is made from fermented rice. Sake is sometimes referred to in English-speaking countries as “rice wine”. However, unlike wine, in which alcohol (ethanol) is produced by fermenting sugar that is naturally present in grapes, sake is produced by a brewing process more like that of beer. In the Japanese language, the word “sake” (酒, “liquor”, also pronounced shu) can refer to any alcoholic drink, while the beverage called “sake” in English is usually termed nihonshu (日本酒, “Japanese liquor”). Under Japanese liquor laws, sake is labelled with the word seishu (清酒, “clear liquor”), a synonym less commonly used colloquially. In Japan, where it is the national beverage, sake is often served with special ceremony- gently warmed in a small earthenware or porcelain bottle called a tokkuri, and sipped from a small porcelain cup called a guinomi. We decided to use an image of Bamboo cause it is one of a symbol of Japan. Also we developed special useful cap that will helps fill in the sake into glass.
