Dry, clean, with ample umami
Kikusui “Karakuchi” was released in 1978, with the aim to create a clean, clear and dry sake with ample umami that would elevate any type of food pairing. 100% high quality local Niigata sake rice is used with umami components left in the rice. Pasteurization is done just once so that in-bottle maturation brings another depth to the flavor while still offering a freshness coming straight from the brewery.
