ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
A jubilant nose of banana cream pie, dried fruits, nutmeg, clove and ripe plum, with flavors of caramel and cocoa, all encased in a silky, dry, clean package. Crisp, clean and exciting. So good that you want to have it on hand at all times, so good that you never tire of it.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Gohyakumangoku rice that has been polished to 55%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Great with lighter dishes: fish, vegetable tempura, pork shabu shabu.
Serve chilled, or slightly warmed to bring out the complex layers; in a wine glass or ochoko.
ASAHI SHUZO - KUBOTALEARN MORE
Asahi Shuzo was founded in 1830 with the motto, "Quality First." They believe that the quality of rice is the utmost importance in sake brewing; as one of their past Toji put it succinctly: "The quality of sake cannot go beyond the quality of the ingredients." Asahi Shuzo spends a vast amount of energy and time into rice making, they've even founded an agricultural production corporation, Asahi Noken, where they research to preserve Japan's national agriculture and produce better sake rice.
