"DEMON SLAYER" WAKATAKE GINJO
$31.98
Quantity

Light, Rich, Bright, & Balanced

The nose on this sake that is made by a new master brewer at Wakatake, is a gentle collection of blueberry, melon, sweet rice, and apple tones. Read More...
This new "Demon Slayer" drinks far more controlled and drinkable than the former version, as it is slightly more reserved and dry. Gone are the fruit pops, but there is a gentle collection of fruit elements such as ripe pear with a hint of blueberry. Even and well balanced this brew has a new smoothness that does well in the mouth. Semi-fat, semi-dry and a lurking subtle rich sweetness only comes forth as the fluid warms and that is why the toji likes drinking it at room temp.

FOODS: Very versatile and can stand cuisines from salty and savory to spicy with big acidity.

BORN MUROKA NAMA GENSHU JUNMAI DAIGINJO
Rich aroma with lively and robust characteristics of first pressed draft genshu. From Katokichibee Shouten, a brewery with 350 year legacy Read More...
of fine brewing.

The nose on this unpasteurized Daiginjo (not many of these) is made up of rose pedals, cooked banana, leather, tropical fruit, and steamy night elements. This is a really plump and viscous Nama that is both smooth and soft. There are a ton of ripe flavors to choose from honeydew melon wrapped in proscuitto, to a sweet fruit compote, to honeycomb. Juicy and fruity and so darn lively - so much flavor and so little back! The overall celebration of this sake is the every allusive "umami" quality, which is so present that they put a sticker on the bottle that says "umami." Rolling, fruity and soft like a sweet avocado!

The theme underlying Dassai sake-- "Making sake is making dreams: opening a new era of sake." This means that they never become complacent with existing tradition and handcrafted techniques, Read More...
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.

Tasting Notes
Bright and clear as the natural spring from which its water is sourced, this sake displays up-front aromas of green apples and sweet melons with hints of citrus Read More...
fruits and sweet almonds. On the palate, it is delicate, dry, and creamy with a pleasant, clean finish.

Food Pairing
Best paired with crisp salad, Sashimi, citrus based Tiraditos, and light poultry dishes. It also compliments spicy food such as Thai/Vietnamese fares. Creamy cheeses and dessert work wonderfully with this Nigori.

The story of Akita Seishu began in 1865, when founder Jushiro Ito converted a 150 year old thatc hed roof estate into the Dewatsuru sake brewery. Five generations later, the brewery is still run by the Ito family. President Tatsuru Ito works closely with his son Yohei to bring Dewatsuru's award-wining sake to consumers in Japan and throughout the world. The brewery's philosophy is that, " Good harmony makes good sake." Akita Seishu values everything local and strives for a harmonious relationship between man and nature. The Dewatsuru brewery is even certified to produc e organic sake, one of only a few such breweries in all of Japan. Although, working together with nature is not always easy in this frigid region in northern Japan, the harsh winter conditions are ideal for brewing sake and contribute to the distinct, regional flavor profiles of Dewatsuru sake.
