Kirinzan Blue Junmai Daiginjo 720ml
An elegant, restrained top shelf sake with notes of melon, white flowers, chocolate and light salted caramel. As the sake warms in the glass the texture becomes more and more silky.
This sake is part of the "Coloured Bottle" series from Kirinzan, using 100% Gohyakumangoku rice sourced from the local area around the brewery. The colour of each bottle stands for the characteristics of sake – in this case the clear and crisp taste of the sake is represented by the colour blue.
It is interesting to note that for the Japanese, a short clean finish is prized, in order to ready the palate for a second sip. And for sake produced in Niigata the shorter the better.
As well as being a pleasure to drink, this is one of the most giftable bottles of sake in our portfolio.
If you haven't yet tried Niigata prefecture sake, add this to your wishlist.
