This is a nigori that reflects Dassai’s ever-present elegance. Being a junmai daiginjo, this one is slightly less saturated with sake lees (the rice solids in the bottle) compared to other nigori. On the nose you’ll find the faintest hint of muscat, but where this sake shines is its texture and flavor. Its light, fine grain texture accompanies bright and juicy balanced flavors, resulting in a slight sweetness.
Dassai is made in
Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd., the maker of Dassai with 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.
