Being named “Onikoroshi,” or “Demon Slayer,” which is a common name for dry sake, this sake has a dryness that is accompanied by a wonderful, stoney and mineral flavor that gets more crisp when served cold. Warmed up, it will give you a kick—and the sweetness and mellowness you can find after it cools down—just like a demon who’s relaxed after a nice sip of sake.
This sake is unique in that it is meant to be enjoyed chilled, even in the often-drank-warm kimoto sake. Enjoy this special creation by master brewer Takanobu Sato, awarded the “Contemporary Master Craftsman” with the subtle aroma of melon and white flowers. The extremely smooth texture is achieved by perfecting this labor intensive orthodox brewing technique. Compatible for any food pairing, with underlying umami.
Please chill this bottle and open it over the sink carefully. The fine mousse of the carbonation is produced by secondary fermentation in the bottle, and the rice sediments will give you a fine texture on the palate. It does pair well with food, although if you haven’t tried sparkling nigori sake before, we recommend you enjoy it in a flute to show off the bubbles, by itself, with music.
Although from a reputable brewery from a very historic region, this is not your typical junmai daiginjo. Are you able to catch the humble expression of ginjo-ka, full of white flowers and a hint of anise? On the palate, it has a layered depth from the Omachi rice grown in Bizen-no-kuni in Okayama Prefecture—the birthplace of this heirloom strain. This sake will give you a different impression with each sip.
Winner of multiple awards for being an exceptional sake enjoyed in a wine glass, this isn’t your typical ginjo. The floral bouquet is more like a sunflower bouquet, and the flavor is layered and expansive, thanks to the work of two famous sake rice, Omachi and Yamadanishiki. Label design is based on the ship that a famous merchant Kinokuniya Bunzaemon took, journeying to present day Tokyo carrying delicious tangerines from Wakayama.
Notice the delicate aroma of tropical fruits flowing out as you pour. And on your palate, feel the solid structure provided by rigorous fermentation thanks to the famous water source balanced with the right amount of nutrients. The bottle is designed with UV protection to prevent the sake from aging. And they actually have a recommended glassware for you to enjoy this in—the Riedel Chardonnay glass.
