Sake might just be the most famous example of rice wine - though, rice "wine" is actually brewed, similar to beer. Like wine, sake can range from dry to sweet, and there are many different types and qualities. So how do you know what to look for? Well, we suggest heading to your local Japanese restaurant and making no plans for the next day...
  1. Nakano Junmai-ginjo “Kinokuniya Bunzaemon” Sake has a mild but slightly tart taste, with a highly fragrant gentle ginjo (careful brewing) aroma and the goodness of rice that softly blossoms in your palate. Enjoy the clean-cut taste of this junmai ginjo sake.
  2. The most important thing in making The CHOYA is to use higher quality plums. Choya has been working with ume farmers to create good soil, and has been pursuing plums suitable for plum wine. The CHOYA uses 100% of Kishu-produced Nanko ume, and carefully selects and uses ume with a high ripeness and rich fragrance.
  3. Beautifully smooth and broad on the palate, this premium sake delivers a pleasant aroma that hints of banana. Rice polishing rate: 45%
  4. This is a very refined sake with flavors and aromas that are subtle and soothing. It's wonderful near a warm fireplace in the evening after a long day on the ski slopes. Subtle aromas reminiscent of French vanilla ice cream and cardamom lead into a soft, creamy palate with silky texture and flavors of lightly seasoned cream of wheat and honeydew. At room temperature, baking spice aromas and flavors become prominent and the palate is even creamier.
