ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
HAKUTSURU JUNMAI GINJO
Elegant, flowery nose of melon, white grape, sweet rice and cantaloupe. A dry, smooth sake with flavors of dried pear and melon with a rounded, dry finish. A gentle sake with a slightly lower alcohol content, great for light weights as well.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Japanese Domestic Rice that has been polished to 60%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Pairs well with light, salty dishes such as edamame, tempura and steamed clams, but also tangoes well with more robust dishes like Korean BBQ and American BBQ.
Chilled or at room temperature, enjoy this sake in a wine glass or ochoko.
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.
