      All about futsushu

      What is futsushu sake?

      Futsushu sake is a popular drink in Japan. Just like a regular table wine of the western world, futsushu is an everyday sake. While there are some fabulous variants in the market, you can find rough-and-ready futsushu drinks as well. It's best to experiment and find out the right variant according to your tastes. It's generally made of unpolished rice and carries the flavor and fragrance of rice. You can find apple sake as well. Cheaper variants may taste rough, but high-quality futsushu is rich, smooth and flavorful.

      The right way to serve

      While chilled is the best way to serve most alcoholic drinks, people often consume futsushu warm. You can consume it at room temperature also, but its flavors open up as the beverage gets warmer. At cold temperatures, it has muted flavors. Because the drink has a robust flavor, you can enjoy it with meals that have heavy flavors. It goes well with sweet sauces, making it a good match with grilled ribs and yakitori. While futsushu doesn't have complex flavors, it is certainly enjoyable.

      Choosing futsushu

      This drink is an ordinary non-premium Japanese sake that you can consume every day with dinner. Futsushu is very popular in Japan, and 80% of all sake is futsushu. Some manufacturers add pure distilled alcohol in it to lower the cost and increase the yield. While connoisseurs might not like this sake, it has a large fan following. Some futsushu varieties come with added flavors and sugars to improve the taste, but better futsushu varieties come without any add-ons. Every type of liquor has good and bad variants, and it's important to find the right product. The same with futsushu. If you're tasting it for the first time, you'll need to try a couple of them before you find the right one.
