Background

Sake is Japan’s most famous alcoholic drink, brewed using special sake rice. Sake has many different types and grades depending on the brewing process, ingredients used and percentage the rice is polished. Try sake warmed, at room temperature, or even serve chilled on ice or in a cocktail for a refreshing drink.

How To Use

Honjozo is a versatile sake that can be enjoyed in a number of ways.
• Heat in a tokkuri sake bottle in a bowl of hot water until 40°C to 50°C.
• Serve at room temperature in a glass with ice.
• Alternatively, refrigerate several hours before drinking for ice-cold refreshment.

These were bought as gifts for my sensei and instructors so I will not get the chance to try the sake itself (although I'm sure they'll tell me what they think of it and I may then order some to treat myself!) but I was very impressed by the item that arrived and I think it will be really enjoyed by those I've given it to, particularly my sensei, who used to live in Japan. The presentation of the product is beautiful and I think the awards it has won should speak for themselves re quality and taste.

This is my go to sake for both drinking and using in cooking. It may be Honjozo rather than Jinmai but is a good tasting drink both cold and warm.

This was a gift so haven't tried it yet, but it as reccomended to me by a friend who knows his sake, and who loved it. As I'm from the UK I worried about locating the exact sake, but was relieved to find it on Japan Centre with fast delivery options.
