A well balanced Junmai Daiginjo with fresh tropical fruit aromas (a hint of persimmon) and a rich rice flavours. It won a Gold Medal in Fine Sake award Japan in 2020.  Pairs well with Wagyu and other fatty beefs. This sake is a Nama (non-pasteurised) but it's safe to keep at room temperature without spoiling because it uses a high tech enzyme filter. Excellent value for money. Previously Known as "Nihonsakari Junmai Daiginjo Namazake"

The Brand

Nihonsakari is one of Japan's largest sake producers.  The brewery is based in the prestigious sake making regions at Nadagogo of Hyogo Prefecture. Their focus on quality has helped them to be a prominent sake makers, they were recognised as a top-quality sake maker within 10 years of their founding in 1889. Since 1913, their sakes and their Juman Ginjo Souhana have been served in the Japanese Imperial Household.

Rice: Our local rice is called Yamada Nishiki and it’s also known as “the king of sake rice”. It has a large grain and ideal characteristics for sake brewing.

Water: We use miyamizu, subsoil water from the Rokko mountain that springs out in Nishinomiya. Its mineral content makes it a key ingredient for superior, clean and crisp sake.

Koji: Koji is the mold that allows the conversion of starch into glucose, a necessary precondition for fermentation. At the same time, during this process, the enzymes inside koji produce the amino acids of sake.

Yeast: We use different kinds (more than 600) of yeast in order to create the unmistakable aromas of our sakes. For most of our sake we use our original yeast, that exists only inside the Sakari brewery.
