A crisp sake enveloped in fruity, soothing aromas.

Providers of fresh, distinctive sake to the Japanese Imperial Household for over 100 years, Sakari delivers elegantly dry and lively refreshment with this fruity daiginjo sake. Brewed in Nishinomiya, this sake benefits from the natural, high-grade quality of local Yamada Nishiki rice, fermented and distilled in the mineral rich waters of Mount Rokko to produce a delicate umami palate of sharp and luscious citrus notes. Polished by half to access the intricately sweet and unique flavours of each rice grain, this sake is refined with Sakari's own cultivated yeast to ensure a crisp, refreshing finish. Best enjoyed chilled, this sake pairs well with tender foods such as seafood and tofu and is sublime as an apéritif or drink to wind down the evening.

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.
