Junmai Sparkling Sake

OSAKE Sparkling was the North America's first locally made effervescent sake, and has maintained its popularity since 2012. 

With its light, crisp, and brilliant body, it delivers aromas of tropical fruits and citrus.  A perfect accompaniment to seafood, fruits, and cheese.

It is made from 60% milled California mid-size-grain rice dedicated to sake making.

Our products


It all begins with rice

Our philosophy: Sustainable, Local, and Natural–


Established in 2007 on Granville Island, Artisan SakeMaker is known as a unique commercial winery that handcrafts award winning, and small batch fresh sake. Our “OSAKE” is widely recognized as “Canada’s first locally produced fresh premium Sake”, and its popularity has reached across the country and beyond.

This philosophy is practiced in all of our product development – sourcing and processing ingredients, sake making procedures and rice growing practices.


Osake is made in small batches several times a year in cycles roughly corresponding to the changing of the seasons. This allows us to produce versatile rice wines that complement the varied in-season bounty of our local west coast cuisine; from fish and shellfish in spring and summer to heart-warming braises and stews in fall and winter.

After seven years of trials and errors, we reached our first milestone and produced our entire sake products from 100% Canadian contents in 2015.

Our current mission is to increase the yield and quality of rice to produce exquisite Osake products to reach a wider audience for their enjoyment of true “Canadian Sake”.
