Winner of the International Wine Challenge 2010 for best junmai-grade sake.

For a top quality sake that celebrates using best ingredients, look no further than Katokichibee's Junmai Daiginjo sake. Made from the highest quality of Yamadanishiki rice from the special region "A" from Hyogo Prefecture and milled to 50%, this sake has been aged for 2 years in the unpasteurized state under 0 degrees Celsius. The result is a refined sake that's clean and well-balanced in taste and fragrance that comes with a hint of grapefruit at the tail. Enjoy this award-winning sake cold.

Type: Special Junmai Daiginjo
Flavour: Medium dry 
Drinking Temperature: Cold (4-5℃)

ITEM ID: #13066

Background

Sake is Japan’s most well-known alcoholic drink. It is brewed using any of a number of specialty sake rices, koji (otherwise known as rice malt or rice mould), and sometimes a little brewer's alcohol. Any sake that does not contain brewer's alcohol is known as a junmai sake, or a pure rice wine. A sake's characteristics (flavour, mouth feel, and others) depend on factors such as the type of rice used and how much that rice has been milled/polished. To explore the wide and varied world of sake, take a look at Japan Centre's Sake section.
