ABOUT THIS BOTTLE

DASSAI 45

Chewy and full of body. Light honeydew aromas with the subtle sweetness of muscat grapes complemented by an undercurrent of crisp dryness. Reminiscent of white wine in the best possible way.

TASTING NOTES

Rice Polishing Ratio

This sake is made from 100% Yamada-Nishiki rice that has been polished down to 45%.

HOW TO ENJOY

PAIRING

Pairs easily with anything: chicken wings, grilled fish, yakitori, sushi.

  

SERVING

Best served chilled, on the rocks. Drinking in a white wine glass brings out the aroma and taste.

Through crises and difficulties, Asahi Shuzo has carefully innovated their own unique way to brew sake. Over the past few years they adapted their work to produce sake year-round (instead of just during sake season), something all but unheard-of in the industry. By producing sake steadily, they have succeeded in minimizing variables, allowing them to focus on the minutiae of the craft. These details include labor-intensive hand-craft methods that have been proven over centuries to yield better sake, but also the most modern technology applied in the right measure, in the right places.
