Dassai "50" Junmai Daiginjo Nigori Sake (300ml)

Possibly the sexiest Nigori we have ever tasted. You don't usually see Nigori at a Ginjo level! This is sleek and delightfully light. There is a touch of carbonation, which helps lift the sweetness of the rice. Great fruity notes and a very clean style for a creamy sake. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood)

Born Muroka Nama Genshu Draft Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml

Next day shipping recommended. The "Born" sake takes its name not from a Japanese word, but a Sanskrit one meaning "innocent pureness" or "capturing the truth." And it does feel like some secret truth about Gohyakumangoku rice is captured here, quite poetically, in the form of an unfiltered, full-bodied, complex sake made by Katokichibee Shouten, a 350-year-old brewery. Genshu is the first-press, undiluted sake and has a higher alcohol content than other styles.
