Description of the unique tastes of the Sake made by the 9 distinctive breweries. (Autmun Sake)
YamagataDewazakura Sake Brewery
Japan has four seasons. This is a beautiful, lightly blurred sake with a sense of the seasons, like the snowflakes performing a parting dance through winter or the petals of cherry blossoms dancing in spring. The taste is refreshing and dry while feeling the umami of sake. It has both umami and freshness, making it easy to pair with any dish, from light to strong flavors. Enjoy it in a glass sake cup so that you can enjoy the lightly blurred appearance.
TokyoOzawa Shuzo Co., Ltd. (Sawanoi)
Fresh, fruity, and vibrant sake, as if squeezed out of a freshly picked muscat. The aftertaste is refreshing and crisp. This is the taste of guiltness. If you drink it chilled, you will be tempted by its freshness to keep on drinking without thinking. But this liquor is quite high in alcohol (17 degrees). Just be careful not to drink it too much as it is totally good♪
HiroshimaKamoizumi Sake Brewery
A fruity, light, and refreshing sensation, reminiscent of white grapes. The acidity of lactic acid adds nuances. It has a watery, easy-to-drink quality, so chill it nicely to accentuate and enjoy its freshness. As for dishes to be served together, it goes well with lightly seasoned dishes. It is also a good match for fried food, as the refreshing sake quality will help the oil to drain away quickly!
IwateNanbu Bijin Sake Brewery
The sweetness and umami of the rice spreads in your mouth. You will enjoy a refined drinking experience If the bottle is chilled, you can enjoy an elegant, refreshing sweetness. As you raise the temperature, the umami of the rice becomes more prominent, and the balance of sweetness and umami plays a wonderful harmony. By changing the drinking temperature, you can enjoy pairing it with any food, from refreshingly seasoned dishes to strongly seasoned dishes.
KyotoMasuda Tokubee Brewery
Impressed by the crisp, freshly squeezed taste! It has a wonderful balance of subtle sweetness and freshness. One way to enjoy this sake is by chilling it to highlight its freshness. Another way is drinking it at room temperature to let the sweetness rise. It goes well with seafood dishes and herb-infused dishes that remind us of spring! It is a refreshing sake that brings the spring breeze.
Hyogo is a major producer of Yamada Nishiki, the king of sake rice! This sake—brewed with Yamada Nishiki—is smooth on the palate and has a slightly fruity aroma. The taste is pleasant and light with mild sourness, yet you can enjoy the richness and umami of the rice. You will fully enjoy the charm of Yamada Nishiki. The dishes to be served together should match the noble image of Yamada Nishiki, such as fine Japanese cuisine with elegant flavors. Drink this sake in a wine glass, and have an elegant time.
Many people think of Niigata’s sake as "light and dry," but this sake is very fruity and sweet, reminiscent of freshly picked fruits such as peach and muscat. You can feel the breadth of Niigata’s sake. It also has a pleasant, refreshing sourness that makes it a perfect match for well-seasoned Chinese food, as if you were pouring a refreshing fruit sauce on the food.
EhimeIshizuchi Shuzo Corporation
Without asserting itself, it is always unobtrusive and pure. But as you continue to drink it, the fruity aroma, sweetness, sourness, and umami gradually spread. You can compare this sake to a woman. The more you meet her, the more you understand her core strength. She is truly a "Yamato Nadeshiko”—the ideal Japanese woman. With such modesty and core strength, this sake should be paired with gently flavored dishes such as broth or lightly seasoned white fish. It will bring out and expand the umami from lightly seasoned dishes. Enjoy feeling the diligent work of such a Yamato Nadeshiko.
It has a fruity flavor, reminiscent of muscat or strawberry. It also has a lactic acidic, refreshing flavor, like fruit with yogurt sauce. Will leave you a bit excited. This is a sake that is easy to drink not only for those who like sake but also for women and sake beginners. Chill and enjoy the refreshing sweetness. It also goes very well with lightly flavored Italian dishes like carpaccio.
with Unique Tokkuri
“Special Sake with Unique Tokkuri” is a Japanese Sake subscription service
based on the “Kayoi-Tokkuri” culture prevalent during the Edo period.
During the Edo period in Japan,
people brought their own Tokkuri to the liquor stores and buying the amount of Sake they needed.
This “Kayoi-Tokkuri” culture is the perfect example of sustainability as it eliminates the use of disposable containers.
Seek the Story of Sake has redesigned the “Kayoi-Tokkuri” for the modern world and is providing it as a service
that allows international customers to “patronize (Kayoi)” Sake breweries in Japan.
