Monthly Discovery Box Preview
Manotsuru Junmai Daiginjo Sado Yamadanishiki
Made from Yamadanishiki grown on Sado Island. Complex, spicy notes with round mouthfeel. Very unique! IWC Gold Medal 2019.
Keiryu Junmai Ginjo
Bright green apple, pear, anise, banana & peach, with hints of citrus and guava. Note of minerality and creamy texture. Long, complex finish. IWC Gold Medal 2016
Four Fox Junmai Daiginjo
Hardcrafted in the mountains of Niigata Japan. Each winter, master craftsmen use local source rice and snowmelt water to create a pure, smooth & refreshing Junmai Daiginjo. The stunning bottle also pays homage to the ancient swordsmiths to whom Inari was god, with a katana embossed into the profile of every bottle and is packaged in a gift box.
Dewazakura Tokubetsu Junmai Amabie
Amabie is a legendary sea monster in Japanese folklore. Drawings of it is said to stave off disease. This is a special sake released by Dewazakura to pray that the effects of coronovirus will soon be gone, and return to peaceful days. This sake is refreshing with moderate umami. Great with Ratatouille, seasonal tomatoes and other fresh ingredients.
Echizen Misaki Daiginjo "Gin no Shizuku"
Using the best Yamadanishiki from Hyogo, this is the brewery's top sake. It has won gold 10 years at the prestigious Japan New Sake Competition, balancing gorgeous ginjo aroma with soft taste.
Toko Cho Karakuchi Junmai Ginjo
This chokarakuchi (super dry) sake has a beautiful finish that does not conflict with the flavor of your meal and the dryness does not diminish from the umami of this sake.
Eikun Junmai Daiginjo Ichigin
Elegant aroma with silky smooth texture. It won a gold medal in the 2019 International Wine Challenge
Kawatsuru Junmai Ginjo Olive Yeast
The Olive fruit is a symbol of Kagawa. It is even used to feed Sanuki Wagyu. This sake is made with yeast isolated from Kagawa Olives.
Senkin Junmai Daiginjo Issei
Part of the Senkin Premium Series, Senkin promises the smooth and beautiful flavours of an ultra polished Junmai Daiginjo with a twist.
W Yamadanishiki Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu
The W in this series stands for both Watanabe Shuzo, and "Warai", laughter in Japanese. Japanese Comedy is played to the sake mash, to ensure happiness for the sake, the brewery staff, and the consumer.
Apparently I preferred the Toko Junmai Ginjo Cho Karakuchi from Toko compare to the Echizen Misaki Daiginjo "Gin No Shizuku". Both are pretty smooth to drink. Thank you!
hahaha, this is the amazing thing about sake. You can appreciate the more expensive bottle, but doesn't mean that that is your preference
Really happy I started to subscribe! I enjoy the well selected sakes and so far, no disappointment. Looking forward to next month’s:)
Discovering and learning about sake just got a little more fun with the monthly discovery boxes from fine sake purveyor @interriceasia. Every month our sake sommelier friends there curate a couple of interesting bottles that's specially brought in for this purpose, and includes at leat a premium daiginjo or juinmai daiginjo. We got ourselves in the month of June, for example, the elegant @senkinofficial Junmai Daiginjo Issei from the Tochigi Prefecture-based producer, as well as the W Yamadanishiki Junmai Muroka Nama Genshu from @watanabesakebrewery of Gifu Prefecture.
