I don’t think that there are any leprechauns in the sake world, but there is certainly a lot of green! Most every sake brewery has some shade of green on their brewery floors, a very large portion of sake bottles are green, and freshly made sake has a greenish hue to it. And lastly, the wonderful sugidama or cedar ball that hangs at the entrance of most breweries starts out bright green. Maybe sake does have the luck of the Irish.
