What is Sato?

Sato is a Southeast Asian, Lao rice wine made from sticky rice, the staple food of the Lao people. Sato is made using a process called parallel fermentation where microbes extract the sweet nectar from rice grains while yeast simultaneously converts the nectar into alcohol.

Rice wine has been made for centuries across Southeast Asia with slight variations across the different country's ethnic groups. Sato is the version that can be found in the country of Laos and Northeastern Thailand where the ethnic makeup is predominantly Lao.
