Drinks

Blanca’s drink list has taken some time to develop, a bit like some of the finest wines and sakes on the list. It’s a sign of a passionate approach to wines, other high quality drinks and gastronomy. It has been inspired by travels around the globe, tips from our friends, professional partners and above all, our own senses.

Sake

All sake’s served at Blanca are high quality and they are served chilled, we also use them in our cocktails. Sake is traditional Japanese beverage. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a distilled spirit or rice wine. Sake is a fermented beverage like beer. However, in the end Sake resembles more wine than a beer and is usually described in those terms in the wine world. Traditional sake is an excellent companion with Blanca’s fresh flavours.  Sake can also be flavoured with fresh Yuzu or kabosu fruit juice.
