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 and 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 Shuzo Co., Ltd.

Yamaguchi prefecture

Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd., the maker of Dassai and 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.
