Akitabare Koshiki Junzukuri "Northern Skies"

Akitabare is the kind of sake one can drink enjoyably for hours at a stretch. Its subdued, understated refinement evokes a sense Read More...
of the northern province where it is meticulously brewed. Pleasingly dry and quite mild, a well-crafted traditional sake.
This Junmai has a plum nose with subtle grass tones. The first sip has a fairly dry start filled with hints of lemon, plum, and grape skin tones. The viscosity is slick and shimmering and the overall feel is soft and balanced. This Junmai is a classic "three sipper" which means you need to realize three sips to find the soul and beauty of this semi-dry Junmai.

the starter for the Sake, the fermentation vessel is left open, allowing natural (and more funky) yeast to ferment the Sake. It takes 4 weeks to nurture the yeast instead of the normal one week. This extra-long process creates a dry, earthy, complex brew with virtually no unwanted flavors what-so-ever. The aroma is fragrant and delicate with hints of rice, cherry and sandalwood. The palate is clean, dry and pure with lovely tropical fruit flavors. The finish is a phantom. Lush nuances are all that’s left behind of what was once…a dream perhaps? No, it’s just Daishichi.

but rather want to reform and revolutionize how some things are done, and in so doing make superior sake. "Beyond" sake reflects this philosophy-- it is the ultimate expression of their 'pushing the boundaries', as it were, to create the best sake possible. The milling rate and brewing process are secret-- but suffice it to say, Dassai has gone beyond conventional methods to create Beyond.

red berries. On the palate, the sake is pleasant with a touch of sweetness that is balanced by crisp acidity and a light texture that create a balanced, transcendent sake.

Brewery: In the romantic snow country of Akita, Japan, just 5 minutes from Akita Seishu Brewery in Daisen, is the ancient ruins of Hotta No Saku, an active fort built for the Yamato Imperial Court in the Heian Era,792-1185AD. When it was excavated, 1000-year-old "Murasaki Mai" purple rice grains from faraway lands in southeast Asia were found. These grains were the origins of purple rice strains developed over a millennium to grow in northern regions. In 1996 the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries along with the Association for the Revitalization of ancient rice petitioned Akita Seishu brewery to craft sake made with this ancient heirloom purple rice strains. Honored and inspired, Mr. Ito challenged his master sake brewers to capture the magnificent cherry-blossom-blush of color of this ancient rice. So Sakura Emaki came to be. Sakura means cherry blossom and refers to the beautiful flower, so emblematic of Japan, while Emaki refers to the illustrated scrolls on which the first ever novel The Tales of Genji were written and preserved.
