About the Sake:
Kikusui Junmai Ginjo: “This is a light and comfortably dry premium Sake with the aroma of fresh cantaloupe and banana followed by medium body bringing refreshing Mandarin oranges like overtones. With just the right amount of body and a comfortable dryness it enhances any dish you eat. This is a great white wine alternative that is perfect for Sake lovers and beginners alike.”
Kikusui Organic Junmai Ginjo: “This Sake is brewed from organic rice grown in naturally fertilized soil. With no additives or preservatives, the goodness of the organic rice is perfectly preserved in this premium Junmai Ginjo. This Sake reveals a gentle aroma of honeysuckle and a hint of ripe bananas and the flavor of fresh melons.”
Kikusui Perfect Snow: “This full-bodied sweet Nigori genshu is not just the regular Nigori Sake. It’s undiluted so has 21% alcohol contect and chewable grains of rice from our traditional brewing methods. Perfect Snow also provides for more versatile drinking possibilities than your normal Nigori Sake, you can drink it chilled, on the rocks, with soda or mixed with your favorite juice. For easy mixers or fun cocktails Perfect Snow is the perfect partner.”
Funaguchi Kikusui Nama Genshu: “Japan’s first Nama-Sake, created over 40 years ago, sparking the Nama-Sake boom. Being un-pasteurized and undiluted allows you to enjoy the fruity aroma and fresh full bodied flavor of this Sake, and being 19% alcohol it’s a high-impact sensory experience. Because of the delicate nature of un-pasteurized Sake this product is sold in a can to shield it from light.”
Funaguchi Kikusui – Aged: “Aged at low temperatures for one year. Being a Nama Sake the enzymes are still active and over the course of a year they allow Aged Funaguchi to acquire a heavier mouthier feel and rich, generous character.”
Sakamai Kikusui: “This Junmai Dai-Ginjo represents the pinnacle of the brewer’s art. With rice milled down to 40% of its original size then fermented slowly at low temperatures. This Sake has a rich aroma and gentle crisp dryness. This is the only Sake in the world made with the legendary Kikusui Sake rice. This rice, thought to be extinct, is the father of the most popular brewing rice in Japan, Gohyakumangoku. Try this Sake for a true taste of Japanese Sake history!”
