ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
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.

Complements lighter to medium dishes: sashimi, teriyaki chicken, seafood cuisine. Also great alone as an aperitif or digestif.

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.
