Mu Junmai Daiginjo

Yaegaki Brewery

Yaegaki Mu Daiginjo - In Japanese, the word mu (無) literally means “nothingness.” Why was such a name given to this sake? Mu was a brand produced in celebration of Yaegaki’s 320th anniversary in 1986. It was a time when more and more machines were being incorporated into sake-making and technology was taking over ever more of the work done by human hands.

Yaegaki Brewery

In Japanese, the word mu (無) literally means “nothingness.” Why was such a name given to this sake? Mu was a brand produced in celebration of Yaegaki’s 320th anniversary in 1986. It was a time when more and more machines were being incorporated into sake-making and technology was taking over ever more of the work done by human hands. Yaegaki, however, resisted this trend and concentrated on the traditional hand-craftsmanship of sake brewing.

This return to the basics-to “nothingness”-is the spirit that lives in the Mu Sake. A soft, clean sake, where its full white grapes and strawberry flavors vanish to a refreshing clean finish. Acidity and sweetness are skillfully balanced.

ABOUT THIS BOTTLE

MU JUNMAI DAIGINJO

This fruity, dry junmai daiginjo has a delicate and brilliantly aromatic character. Slightly sweet on impact with low acidity. Great for sake-curious beginners as it's not a heavy-hitting ultra-daiginjo, but has a solid amount of depth. The aroma of green apples and Asian pear with a hint of piney resin complements its smooth and refreshing taste.

TASTING NOTES

Rice Polishing Ratio

This sake is made with both Yamada-Nishiki and Gohyaku-Mangoku rice polished to 50%.


HOW TO ENJOY

PAIRING

Lovely by itself or with meals with lighter flavors, such as vinegar-based salads, white fish (sashimi, sushi, or grilled), fish carpaccio, chicken tenders, and fruits.

SERVING

Best served chilled in a wine glass.

 

  

Yaegaki started out as a timber company founded in Banshu-Hayashida (modern day Himeji area) of Hyogo Prefecture in 1666. The “Yaegaki” brand, established in 1881, was named after a poem written by Susanoo-no-Mikoto, an ancient mythical character thought to have pioneered the Himeji area. In the poem, Susanoo protects his home and his newly-wed wife with many-layered clouds, figuratively expressed as eightfold fences, or yaegaki. Yaegaki uses the name as a symbol of celebration and joy that sake can bring to people's lives.
