Eternal Good Luck: Senpuku, Junmai Daiginjo Genshu
We all wish others good luck during CNY, so what else is better than the sake of Senpuku, which literally means “Thousands of Luck”? This premium Junmai Daiginjo is bottled without adding any water, so the original texture and flavors are well preserved. Complex and fruity with the notes of pear and peach, it also has a dry finish and shows a great balance between umami and acidity. Together with its red and gold design, no wonder it is one of the best gift ideas for CNY.
CNY is all about greetings and blessings. Named “Iwai”, which literally means “Blessings”, this Junmai Daiginjo can perfectly represent your thoughtfulness. Brewed using "Iwai", a local sake rice of Kyoto, it is fruity, refreshing and rich in umami. With the hints of green apple and pear, it is light and quite dry on the finish. It is especially suitable for a mature person.
Denoting “Rich” and “Nobel”, gold is a symbolic color of CNY. However, pure gold color seems a bit exaggerating and old-fashioned, so what about black gold, which is humbler and more stylish? With a black gold design, this Junmai Daiginjo from Zuiyo is not only charming on its look, but on the palate. Brewed using Yamadanishiki polished to 38%, drip-pressed and matured at low temperature, it is fruity and mellow with the hints of lychee and white peach. Let’s present this excellent sake to an important person!
