Description

This sake shows hints of strawberry, musk, ginger and herbs with strong ‘ginjo-ka’ character.

Made with rice polished down to at least 50% and sometimes much more, Daiginjo saké may have brewers alcohol added for artisinal purposes. An ultra-premium grade saké.

Dating back to 1548, Yoshinogawa is the oldest saké brewery in the rice-growing heartland of Niigata Prefecture. Niigata Prefecture has a reputation for producing some of the best saké in Japan due in part to growing some of the best rice in the world. Using this legendary rice, Master Brewer Fujino focuses his team’s efforts on crafting the absolute finest saké. Together they draw from centuries-old knowledge and techniques, crafting diverse styles that reflect their beautiful, lush, and fertile agricultural region.

Sake is Japan’s most well-known alcohol. It is brewed using special sake rice, koji (an edible rice mould that serves as the fermenting agent), and sometimes a little brewer's alcohol. A sake's characteristics, including how sweet or dry it is, how light or full bodied it is, and what flavours it evokes, depend on the type of rice and other ingredients used, how much the rice is polished/milled, and what brewing methods have been employed.
