Nothing puts a smile on your face faster

The Asahi Shuzo brewery took a gamble when it restructured to focus solely on Junmai Daiginjo sake, but the gamble paid off and brought us this delightful sake. Thanks to them you can now try high quality sake at a reasonable price. Dassai 50 holds its own even against pricier Junmai Daiginjos. With engaging flavors and easy pair-ability its no wonder that this sake is popular in Japan and the U.S. The fragrance puts a smile on your face, but the flavor will have you beaming from ear to ear. (Dassai “50” has been discontinued in 2019 and “45” is now available)

Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd.

Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd.

Yamaguchi Prefecture

Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd., the maker of Dassai and a 200-year history, is known for constantly reinventing themselves to adapt to modern challenges. From the turn of the century, they have committed themselves to the premium junmai daiginjo category, leading the sake industry to worldwide recognition. Using the “king of sake rice” Yamadanishiki, their sake exemplifies the modern delicate, floral brew to be enjoyed chilled in a wine glass. Their naming of Dassai “45,” “39” and “23” refers to the rice polishing ratio (the remaining percentage of rice after polishing) with Dassai “Beyond” being the ultimate expression of premium sake.
