We all know that patience is a virtue, and this sake embodies this to the fullest. Collected one drop at a time, Taiten Shiragiku “Daiginjo” makes it worth every second. Upon opening, you’re greeted with a pure, crisp, mineral aroma that has just a hint of star anise. This gives way to a soft texture and light rice flavor backed by cinnamon and almost cotton-candy-like sweet undertones.
Taiten Shiragiku is brewed in Okayama Prefecture in the Chugoku region.
Shiragiku Brewing Company
The brewery was first founded in 1886 and saw some hard times when it was submerged in a great flood in 1973. Fortunately they were able to get back on their feet in their current location in Okayama Prefecture. The brewery gets its name from a gorgeous white chrysanthemum that blooms across Japan in autumn. The sake they brew uses the mineral-rich water of the Takahashi River. Using the best ingredients is essential, but they also recognize the necessity for top-notch skill to produce sake that’s truly worth tasting, so they are constantly honing their skills.
