Worth every drop

We all know that patience is a virtue, and this sake embodies this to the fullest. Collected one drop at a time, Taiten Shiragiku “Daiginjo” makes it worth every second. Upon opening, you’re greeted with a pure, crisp, mineral aroma that has just a hint of star anise. This gives way to a soft texture and light rice flavor backed by cinnamon and almost cotton-candy-like sweet undertones.

Shiragiku Brewing Company

The brewery was first founded in 1886 and saw some hard times when it was submerged in a great flood in 1973. Fortunately they were able to get back on their feet in their current location in Okayama Prefecture. The brewery gets its name from a gorgeous white chrysanthemum that blooms across Japan in autumn. The sake they brew uses the mineral-rich water of the Takahashi River. Using the best ingredients is essential, but they also recognize the necessity for top-notch skill to produce sake that’s truly worth tasting, so they are constantly honing their skills.
