SAKE SWEETNESS

DESCRIPTION

Crowned with the name of the year period of the brewery's foundation, this sake is the top-grade among their regular products. 

This undiluted free run drops 
junmai daiginjo made with the kimoto method is the true King of Sake, combining sophisticated brilliance with a satisfying, strong taste. This carefully matured sake gives sweet-sour accents and boasts an exquisite, fruity aroma that envelops you in its gentle, creamy perfume.

It has received great praise, thanks to its particularly well-balanced body and unparalleled richness. Only a limited number of bottles of this exclusive sake are produced each year.

SOMMELIER'S NOTES

Chill to 10-13 degrees C. Best served as an aperitif or as an after-dinner drink, it also goes wonderfully with dishes of understated flavor.

Goes with beef simmered in red wine, bisque from lobster, smoked salmon, Peking duck, cream stew of chicken, veal cutlet, fruits as melon and strawberries

Daishichi only uses the Kimoto method to brew sake. The method makes use of the struggle for survival of natural microbes, a complex process for which high skill is necessary and which takes three times longer than normal.  The brewery is also a pioneer in flat rice polishing. Normal rice polishing usually wastes starch on the long axis, and the a flat rice polishing ratio of 51% is equal to a normal rice polish of 34%
