It should come as no surprise that there are no flavored sakes, joining many other categories of flavored spirits. Most of these are manufactured in the USA; flavors include Fuji apple, raspberry and lychee. These are usually much sweeter than a traditional sake, as they are clearly appealing to the youth market. Pair with Thai and Fusion cuisine, especially with sweet and sour preparations.
