A gentle waterfall just for you

We all know that patience is a virtue, and this sake exemplifies that better than anything else. Widely held as one of the best sake’s around, Dassai 23 pushes the limits of rice polishing. Getting the rice grains to 23% of their original size takes time, but is well worth it. The fragrance is a bouquet of flowers, delicate, loving. The flavor washes over your tongue like a gentle waterfall deep in a secluded forest, and trickles away into a long, satisfying finish. If you like having nothing but the best, you’ll love drinking Dassai 23.

Asahi Brewing Company (Dassai)

Asahi Brewing Company (Dassai)

Yamaguchi Prefecture

An almost-bankrupt small brewery with 200-year history with declining sales abandons mass-produced brand "Asahi Fuji" and re-focus all its company-resources to create the best “Daiginjo” grade sake. Dassai brand achieved the highest milling rate of rice and rebuilt the perception for sake both in Japan and in the world. They reinvented the traditional sake-making and started year-round production in an effort to provide freshest sake possible to consumers. The aromatic notes and delicate flavors of Dassai are what made a use of wine glass common for drinking sake.
