A smooth daiginjo sake made with Kyoto's most exquisite rice and brewing technique.

Combining the finest rice grains, natural spring waters from Fushimi and a expert eye for brewing into this premium regional sake, imperial brewers Gekkeikan offers velvety-crisp refreshment in truly elegant Kyoto style. Made 100% from the prefecture's highest-grade "Iwai" sake rice, the delicate quality of these rice grains lends to this sake's wonderfully smooth palate, carefully mixed with mineral-rich water to produce a well-bodied mouthfeel with swelling floral notes. Light to sip but increasingly enjoyable with its pleasantly aromatic, lingering finish, this daiginjo sake is best served chilled, provided in a deep azure bottle that's superb to savour with your favourite chocolate or red bean treat. 

Alcohol 14.5% ABV.

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.
