ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
HAKUTSURU SAYURI NIGORI
Oh sweet, gentle Sayuri. This is the sake equivalent of a soft, inviting down comforter that you just want to snuggle in like a hibernating bear cub. Starting with a light-as-a-feather nose of cream, cherry blossoms, and white grapes, it envelopes your palate in a watery cushion with subtle fruity notes of ripe cantaloupe and strawberry. It's easy, but not simple. Dive into this lush, creamy sake after a long work day when you just feel like a tired bag of bones, or after an exciting day where you want to calm your overly-stimulated nerves.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Japanese Domestic Rice that has been polished to 70%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Pairs well with dishes with a little kick to them, like noodles with spicy broth, kimchi fried rice, enchiladas, or desserts like chocolate.
Best served chilled or at room temperature, in a wine glass.
HAKUTSURU BREWERYLEARN MORE
One of the biggest and best-selling brands in Japan, Hakutsuru's reach is far and wide; in fact, they were already a big enough player in the sake world by the 20th century that they were featured in the 1900 Paris World Exposition. They were also the first company to sell sake prepackaged in glass bottles (it was sold by weight before, with the customers bringing their own container from home. Super eco-friendly, actually.) in 1901. Today, they are as savvy with branding as with other aspects, such as lowering their CO2 output, research for eco-friendly packaging, research into proprietary yeast, and a museum with an impressive collection of Japanese and Chinese art.
