The brand that put “premium” on the map
The popular Dassai “50” was replaced by Dassai “45” in 2019 by polishing the rice a bit more. And even though it is the most affordable of their lineup, it belongs to the highest premium sake category with no brewer's alcohol added. They continue to update their recipe to provide exceptional aroma, delicate mouthfeel and flavor year after year — simply a must-try staple for yourself and your friends.

Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd.
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.Learn more
