Ozeki Josen Karatanba Sake, 720 ml
This large bottle of Karatanba sake is a honjozo grade sake, which means that it is a good standard Sake made with rice, water, koji mold and a very small amount of pure distilled alcohol (brewers alcohol) to help extract the natural flavours and aroma. It is a popular sake as it is a light, mildly fragrant and easy to drink dry Sake of 15~16% alocohol.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.
