Tatsuuma Honke Shuzo Hakushika Ginjo Nama Chozo Sake, 180 ml
Sake is the traditional alcoholic drink of Japan, it is a strong rice wine and can be drunk hot or cold. It is made from polished sake rice which is then fermented. The more polished the rice, and the more rice used, the more refined and aromatic the Sake. It is a social drink that is poured into short cups and enjoyed with nibbles or Japanese dishes and like wine, different Sakes match different types of food. Sake comes in many qualities from ring-pull containers made for one, to expensive, decades old Sake distilled in traditional wooden barrels, containing gold leaf or made from secret recipes. This is a Nama Sake which means ‘fresh’, indicating that it is bottled immediately after production rather than being aged for a few months like other Sakes. ‘Ginjo’ means that it is of a high quality, using rice that has been polished to at least 60% of its original size and fermented at colder temperatures for longer periods of time. It is a light, aromatic, fruity and refined Sake with 13~14% alcohol giving it a medium dry taste.
