ABOUT THIS BOTTLE

SUIGEI MANN

An elegant modern sake, but with bold, robust flavors. Makes a gorgeous arc from the moment the aroma reaches you to the moment it cuts away to a clean finish. Aroma of honey and melon, and a small tinge of sugared milk; light, soft texture, with a subdued sweetness and a refreshing acidity.

PAIRING

SERVING

Surprisingly, Suigei is the only sake brewery in Kochi City. It's original incarnation began in 1872, under different name, but in 1969, the company was renamed Suigei. Literally, Suigei means drunk whale, and it is an abbreviation of an alias of Yamauchi Yodo, a Japanese feudal lord of the area. A big drinker, he called himself Geikai suiko (a drunkard lord in a sea full of whales). Their main concentration are shokuchushu, or sakes to be had with meals/food (table sake), and many of their sakes are dry and high in umami and acidity.
