Kimoto Junmai 生酛純米 This junmai sake is made using the traditional kimoto method, which skillfully enables the workings of yeast and lactic acid bacteria in the yeast starter (shubo) to produce a brew that’s uniquely complex and concentrated, yet smooth and elegant.

Tasting Notes, Flavorful and aromatic, yet subtle and extra smooth. Gentle aromas of banana and melon open up to reveal hints of yogurt and dairy. Resonating subtly in the mouth, these aromas merge with the flavors of rice and earth which complement its uniquely smooth texture without being cloying.

Suggested Drinking Style Chill to 10°C and drink slowly, enjoying how the compact mix of aromas and flavors evolve over time, giving more prominence to fruity aromas, and subtly bringing out its acidic flavor components and body as it slowly warms to room temperature. Kimoto Junmai makes an excellent companion to a wide range of food, particularly vegetable dishes and somewhat richer foods. (Pictured: Assorted sashimi)

Kimoto Ginjo 生酛吟醸 This ginjo sake is produced using the traditional kimoto method, which skillfully enables the workings of yeast and lactic acid bacteria in the yeast starter (shubo). Lighter than our kimoto junmai and characterized by its humble fruity aroma and silky palate.

Tasting Notes  Smooth and light, with an unobtrusive aroma and savory character. Modest apple and pear aromas usher in subtle hints of raisins, dry fruit, cheese and earthy elements. Notably smooth and modest all around with a gentle sweetness that gives way to subtle acidity and savory umami, this kimoto type sake works its way slowly through the mouth before delivering a moderately clean finish.

Suggested Drinking Style  Keep chilled in an ice bucket and enjoy in a tumbler or sherry glass. A sake best enjoyed in the company of food, this kimoto ginjo provides just the right amount of character to complement a wide range of cuisine without being overpowering.

Mio Sparkling Sake 澪 A new sensation in the sake world but made traditionally with only rice, koji, and water, Mio is uniquely refreshing and fruity, and balanced with a crisp acidity. Embodying the Japanese character ‘Mio,’ which evokes images of the delicate foam that emerges gently in a ship’s wake, Mio Sparkling Sake is a light refresher that signifies a new wave for Japanese sake.

Tasting Notes  Sparkling and subtly sweet with a crisp acidity Lively aromas of grape and ripe pear rise out of the light effervescence which presents the palate with a gentle sweetness paired with a refreshing acidity when initially sipped. A clean finish with a slightly puckering acidity brings to mind the sensation of drinking sparkling white wine. Like no other sake you’ve tried.

Suggested Drinking Style  The light fruity aroma of this bubbly aperitif are perfectly complemented by a tall champagne glass, while the tight combination of sweetness and acidity demands to be chilled to 5°C.
