Sweet and mellow.

If you enjoy your alcoholic beverages on the sweeter, milder side, and boasting a viscous mouth feel, then Gekkeikan's Nigori Sake is a must-try. Nigori (meaning 'cloudy') sake is characterised by its still containing some of the solid rice particles (rice lees) used during the sake brewing process, which makes the sake sweeter, more mellow, and thicker-textured than other varieties.

Background

Sake is Japan’s most well-known alcohol. It is brewed using special sake rice, koji (an edible rice mould that serves as the fermenting agent), and sometimes a little brewer's alcohol. A sake's characteristics, including how sweet or dry it is, how light or full bodied it is, and what flavours it evokes, depend on the type of rice and other ingredients used, how much the rice is polished/milled, and what brewing methods have been employed. To explore the wide and varied world of sake, take a look at japancentre.com's extensive Sake selection.
