Saketora - Summit Sake

  • TYPE.1
    SWEET FOOD
    WITH SWEET SAKE
    Saketora - Tokyo Zakari Junmai Daiginjo

    Sweet food creates a harmony with sweet sakes. With the hint of stone fruit or tropical fruit, sweet sakes can complement the rich mouthfeel and intense flavors in sweet food, bringing you a more enjoyable palate sensation. Dishes made with Japanese soy sauce or Cantonese oyster sauce will be a perfect match while Paella can be a bolder choice.

  • TYPE.2
    LIGHT FOOD
    WITH LIGHT CRISP SAKE
    Saketora - Nanawarai Daiginjo Ginka

    Light dishes pair excellently with light crisp sake, aka tanrei. The simple and refreshing flavors in a light dish can be complemented by the fresh clean mouthfeel of a light crisp sake that shows a hint of citrus fruit. Good examples of food pairings are white fish sashimi, Chinese white-boiled seafood, tofu salad etc.


  • TYPE.3
    SWEET FOOD
    WITH SWEET SAKE
    Saketora - Tokyo Zakari Junmai Daiginjo

    Dishes that are abundant in umami goes nicely with light crisp sake, aka tanrei. The clean mouthfeel, together with the light body, can accentuate the savory taste in umami, creating a more satisfying experience for your palate. Clams steamed in sake, Chinese steamed seafood, Salt-baked chicken, Thai raw shrimp are good matches.



  • TYPE.4
    LIGHT FOOD
    WITH LIGHT CRISP SAKE
    Saketora - Nanawarai Daiginjo Ginka

    Imagine food and sake are like two stereo speakers – when the volume is consistent, its sound is pleasant; when it is not, it is horrible. This is exactly the same concept when pairing a sake with dishes that have big flavors. The high saltiness and sweetness in a heavy dish would match well with the robust mouthfeel and high complexity in a rich sake. Japanese Teriyaki or dishes with Cantonese black bean sauce would be great choices while Thai yellow curry is nice as well.


  • TYPE.5
    SWEET FOOD
    WITH SWEET SAKE
    Saketora - Tokyo Zakari Junmai Daiginjo

    Sake rich in tartness can create a fantastic harmony with oily food. The fattiness and richness of oily dishes are very palate-satisfying; however, it can also be overwhelming and exhausting. A sake with high acidity shows a sharp and clean aftertaste that can help scrape the fattiness out of our mouth, leading to an outstanding balance. Sakes that are made through the Yamahai and Kimoto fermentation technique usually demonstrate wilder acidity, pairing well with Chinese braised pork, Chinese cured meat and cheese etc.

  • TYPE.6
    LIGHT FOOD
    WITH LIGHT CRISP SAKE
    Saketora - Nanawarai Daiginjo Ginka

    With its robust texture and high complexity, a dry rich sake can complement spicy or hot dishes that are pungent. Spices, herbs and chili can overwhelm our palate, so the high complexity and intensity in a rich sake can counterbalance. And a dry sake usually shows a sharp and clean aftertaste, which can also help cleanse our palate. Southeast Asian cuisine, Mexican food, and dishes with Cantonese spicy garlic sauce are all ideal choices.
