Rice wine drink is a traditional wine made from rice. With sweet taste, low alcoholicity, and rich nutrients, it has been popular among all ages in China for thousands of years.
During my time in Brussels, I was missing the kind of brews that my parents made growing up, much more sweet, sour, and structured. I started off as a home brewing project in 2020. I was an ASM in JD Sport at the time and I loved my job. I would get home and brew at least two weeks because of the multiple stages involved in making rice wine drink.
This natural fermented low alcohol wine is produced by steaming the glutenious rice, fermenting it and pressing it. In the meantime, we are able to make different flavours with the addition of goji berries, ginger or various flowers.
Although labeled a “wine,” rice wine bears more of a similarity to healthy drink, as it is created from fermented rice or grains. As such, it is not gluten-free. You can drink rice wine directly, after being heated or stored in refrigerator. Besides, it is widely used to make Chinese dishes.
