Plum perfection

A plum sake that uses plums straight from Wakayama, known for having the best plums. The nectar is paired with kimoto junmai sake full of umami to harmonize with the plum sourness. Try this one chilled by itself first, then experiment with adding crushed ice or carbonated water. Daishichi “Kimoto” Plum pirouettes and glides between tart and sweet like a skilled dancer, and leave you salivating for more.

Daishichi makes rich, mellow sake with an outstanding reputation in the orthodox kimoto brewing method, in which they specialize. The numerous accolades, won both nationally and internationally, can perhaps be attested to master brewer Takanobu Sato’s perfectionist ways.
