Fresh and complex flavours, packed into a surprising dry and smooth sake.

Going through both stages of pasteurisation at once before it is thoroughly sealed in storage, this Namachozo sake is able to develop a bold and full-bodied flavour that is smooth and easy to savour. Releasing the kind of fresh and fruity aromas only brewers would experience when first bottling their sake, this pull-tab bottle unveils a refined palate of crisp and clean notes that have been able to develop with the sake brewed at only 5°C (41°F) for a whole month. This mellows out the sharpness of this junmai sake, yet allows it to release the unique flavour of slowly activated-enzymes and Hakutsuru self-developed yeast that add a layered taste to the moderate burn this alcohol produces. Finishing neatly on a light and refreshing note, this sake pairs wonderfully with light meals with its evolving essence and is best enjoyed chilled to grasp its fine aftertaste.


Maggiori informazioni

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.
