Is sake a wine or a spirit?

Not a spirit. Closer to wine, but its production is similar to beer.

One of sake's main ingredients is rice, which is a grain and the process of making sake is very similar to the one used to make beer. On the other hand, flavor-wise sake is closer to wine than beer, although it is uniquely different from wine and definitely not related to a spirit like vodka or rum.
