  1. Manufacturing Process
    • Shochu: Shochu is produced through distillation, similar to how brandy and vodka is produced
    • Sake: Sake is brewed in a process not dissimilar to beer, and not ‘fermented’ like in the case of wine, contrary to what many believe!
  2. Alcohol Content
    • Shochu: As a distilled beverage, shochu has an average alcohol content of 25% to 30%
    • Sake: As a brewed alcoholic beverage, sake has a lower alcohol percentage of about 13% to 16%
  3. Main Ingredients
  4. Serving Style
    • Shochu: Shochu can be enjoyed in variety of ways, including neat, on the rocks, iced, warm or even mixed with hot water!
    • Sake: Sake, on the other hand, is usually enjoyed either chilled, warm or hot – but never served with ice
