Our Accredited Sake Quality appraiser says:
The taste has been crafted slowly and gently over time to produce a rich delicate taste with a gorgeous fragrance reminiscent of pears and melons. A lighter Sake yet with deep, fruity flavors that give a full mouthfeel with delicious spreading umami that lingers in the aftertaste.
Please enjoy the skill and effort of the head brewer to produce this rare limited Sake with such a luxurious flavor and aroma.
Sasaki was founded in 1893 and is the only brewer in central Kyoto. Their mission is to use traditional techniques mixed with cutting edge brewing methods, grafted in famous water, to produce an authentic Sake taste. Their Sake inherits the history and tradition of Kyoto.
Kyoto is a basin surrounded by mountains on three sides, and the water that has sunk into the ground along the bedrock of each mountain is collected in the huge rock under Kyoto. The water collected has only one exit so the accumulated water exits very slowly, little by little, producing exceptional “goodness of water”. The water is perfect for not only Sake but also makes Kyoto famous for it’s green tea.
Over the last 1000 years there has been no change in the quality and abundance of underground water. Sasaki brewery is positioned to take maximum advantage of this “goodness of water” and it is this goodness that gives their Sake a distinct flavor profile and makes their Sake of the highest quality, continuously winning awards in Japan and overseas.
Sasaki is a partner in the regional resource utilization project: To collaborate and use ingredients special to their region. Their Sake is brewed according to the food culture of the area and is made exclusively from highly polished rice grown in Kyoto and lovingly brewed at low temperatures.
