Junmai Daiginjo (Autumn Edition)
Rich & Gentle like Ripe Banana
Limited autumn sake of Suishin, a famous sake brewery in Hiroshima Prefecture. With the notes of ripe banana, cereal and some nuts, it is aged for a while and still developing, so it is rich, yet fresh. Only pasteurized once, it is very refreshing and can pair well with salty food like grilled salmon.
Fruity & Sweet like Melon
With the notes of peach, green apple, strawberries and marshmallow, this sake is fruity and sweet on the attack. With the hints of grass on the finish, the balance is excellent too. Only 1,500 bottles are produced because it is brewed using "Aiyama", a very rare rice that it took the brewery up to 3 years to purchase. Definitely unmissable for all fans of Horai.
Rich & Complex like Cereal
Also made by Suishin, this sake is perfectly aged and more robust than the Junmai Daiginjo version, with the notes of rice, cereal, almond and pistachio. Still fresh with a dry finish, it pairs well with savory and oily food like grilled pork belly. It can be served both chilled and slightly warmed.
