Does not alcohol of sake in human bodies kill virus?

Great timing for that.

Seems like a good businessman. I would hope he knows that anything branded as being from Fukushima is going to get a poor reception outside Japan. Hope he avoids putting that on the label.

Unfortunately, no. There's not enough alcohol in sake (or even in vodka) to kill viruses.

Drinking enough sake does make you care less about some damn virus, though.

Aizu-Wakamatsu sake has always been outstanding, nearby in Inawashiro there is a great beer brewery too.
