Sake 酒, an alcohol that is made from fermented rice that has been polished, has many health benefits. We’re talking about sake’s abilities to reduce the probability of cancer due to its amino acids or to slow down ageing, osteoporosis and the list goes on. I mean, an alcohol that does good? I’m on it.
Rejoice all you sake enthusiasts, for there’s now something as wonderful as a monthly sake subscription in Singapore by Sakemaru, which promises to continuously excite you and deliver the most intriguing sakes you’ll probably ever encounter right to your door step.
