There are currently 27 brands of Awasake that have been certified through a strict screening process and comply with standards such as being clearly transparent, and having a ray of beautiful and fine bubbles through maturation. Of these, 20 varieties are exported to over 25 countries and regions throughout the world, including the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore. In recent years, Awasake has attracted much attention for the rapid increase in the number of sake-related awards it has received overseas.
