HOW TO ENJOY

PAIRING

A versatile sake, plays well with most foods. Great with gentle foods like sashimi or mushroom risotto, but also stands up to richer dishes like tonkatsu and fried chicken.

SERVING

Enjoy in a white wine glass to bring out underlying aromatic, herbaceous characteristics, making the sake read dry; enjoy in a smaller ochoko to highlight the fruitiness of the sake.

The very few Ginjos that were commercially sold were incredibly expensive, and usually bought only to be given as gifts. Click to learn more.
