Sakari No.11 Junmai Daiginjo Sake, 720 ml

Delivery to UK and EU only. Require ID check before dispatch through partner AgeChecked.
£38.00

A polished, silky smooth sake with a crisp, tropical palate.

Providers of fresh, distinctive sake flavours to the Japanese Imperial Household for over 100 years, Sakari delivers refined refreshment with this exquisitely sweet and delicate junmai 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 rich, medium-bodied palate of tropical fruits with subtle notes of persimmon. Carefully polished down to half their size, this junmai daiginjo unlocks the core sweetness of each rice grain, smoothly unravelling its complex flavours & aromas with Sakari's own original cultivated yeasts. Best enjoyed chilled, this sake balances well with seafood, tofu and other tender foods, whilst drawing out the sweeter umami depth of other fermented flavours including miso and dashi stock.

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.
