I really like this Japanese sake. It tastes great!

Japanese sake is called ''Japanese rice wine' too. It's getting popular in the foreign counties. There are so many brands depending on the varieties of rice and the difference of the production process. Of course, the taste is different from each other. Basically, Japanese sake is made by fermenting rice with the yeast.
As you can see, we can enjoy the aroma. If we heat it, it spreads out. Each of the brands is supposed to have its best way to drink it.

1. No need for "the" here.
2. Another way to say it - Each brand has a unique way to consume it.
I see what you mean. Is sake as strong as wine? What is your favorite sort of sake, by the way?

In fact, sake tends to be stronger than wine, but weaker than whiskey.
I like fruity and sweet one! There are roughly two types of sake, dry or sweet. I used not to see what was so good about sake in the past, but I'm now getting to know its tastiness as I'm older. It seems to me that Japanese sake matches with plain-tasting foods like Sashimi (raw fish) and pickles in order to enjoy its aroma. It's matter of taste though.

1. Since we are referring to something generic here, we need to use the plural form.
When we are talking about something generic, we make the countable noun plural to render a generic sense.
2. A simpler way to put it
3. You can simply say this.
4. Use "a" before countable nouns (or adjectives) that start with a consonant sound.
It's good that it's not too strong, which would ruin the taste. I've never had the opportunity to try authentic Japanese sake, unfortunately. Are the only ingredients required to make sake rice and yeast?

Now that you are drinking it, I'm glad to share good time with you.
Surprisingly, all that's required to make sake are rice, yeast and good water. That's why the quality of each ingredient are important all the more. So, the sake factory is usually located in a river known as the beautiful and clear one.
Besides, it takes time and a lot of efforts to make sake by using simple ingredients. Some people who love sake visit the sake factories everywhere and enjoy not only drinking, but also appreciating the process.

1. Use "a" before countable nouns (or adjectives) that start with a consonant sound.
2. Since we are talking about "quality" here, we need to use the singular form
3. Places in river drown. Hence we need to say "around"
I'm also happy I got the opportunity to try it with you now!
Wow, only 3 ingredients! I'm sure the making process is much more complicated, though. Would making sake be easy for a beginner?

I guess it's really difficult for a beginner to make sake. Every process is so sensitive because using yeast to make rice to ferment is just like they handle living things. The state is always changing and they should watch out when is the best to move on to the next process. Only people who have a lot of experiences can know that.
Next time I'll take you to some sake factories. If you have favorite taste, let me know. I'll decide which sake factories are preferable for you.

1. We don't use "the" with best in this context because here "best" is just stated as a matter of fact.
2. Subject-verb agreement (since you used "have")
3. it suits the context more. You could also say - If you prefer sweet sake, let me know, I'll decide the factory visit accordingly.
I'd like to be able to make my own sake one day, but it sounds like I would need a lot of experience to do so. Have you ever attempted to make sake?
I definitely prefer the sweeter taste.

Oh, that's why you asked me! I think it's possible for ordinal people to make sake as long as you don't seek the quality just like the one you're drinking now. It'll be fun to challenge making the one that fits your taste.
I've never made sake myself, but I did part time job at a Japanese restaurant where it served many Japanese sake. So, I'm a bit familiar with sake. Based on your taste, I'd like to recommend you 'Houou Biden' that is made in Tochigi prefecture. It's sweet and aromatic!

1. "ordinal" relates to a thing's position in a series. I think you meant this.
2. Use "a" before countable nouns (or adjectives) that start with a consonant sound.
3. A better way to put it.
