The Asahi Shuzo brewery took a gamble when it restructured to focus solely on Junmai Daiginjo sake, but the gamble paid off and brought us this delightful sake. Thanks to them you can now try high quality sake at a reasonable price. Dassai “45” is the better version of the popular Dassai “50” which used to be known for its premium quality. With engaging flavors and easy pair-ability its no wonder that this sake is popular in Japan and the U.S. The fragrance puts a smile on your face, but the flavor will have you beaming from ear to ear.
Dassai is brewed in Yamaguchi Prefecture in the Chugoku region.
