If there ever were a role model for junmai daiginjo, this is it. Dassai “39” is a skillfully balanced sake that strikes a wonderful compromise between Dassai “23” and “45.” It borrows some of the best qualities from each and combines them into a sake with a more subtle aroma, higher acidity, and a creamy texture. The juicy melon note provides the bouquet that fades into a crisp aftertaste.
Dassai is made in
Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd., the maker of Dassai with 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.
