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 simultaneously yeast converts the nectar into alcohol.

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

Sato made in the villages of Southeast Asia will contain 2-6% alcohol, however at Village Ghost we have elevated the alcohol content to 14% so you all can get that sweet buzz.

Village Ghost Sato does not contain sulfites or preservatives and the sweetness is all natural sugars from the rice.

Village Ghost is proud to be the first and finest Sato to market in the US!

The long journey to launching Village Ghost started when Jot was a boy who would steal a few sips of his Dad’s sato resulting in a swift scolding. A few years later, he’d stand shoulder to shoulder with his mother to make his first batch of sato.

Jot's grandmother and mother brewed for local villagers, passing family secrets from generation to generation. Now, after spending many years building on what he learned from his mother, Jot is proud to share  the outcome of this intergenerational effort, Village Ghost Sato.
