Shirakabegura Kimoto - Junmai Sake - fish, chicken or vegetarian

€27,00 EUR

  • Kimoto Junmai is a premium refreshing sake
  • Rice polish level 70%
  • Rice type: Gohyakumangoku

This Ginjo sake from the Shirakabegura brewery is produced using the traditional "kimoto zukuri" process, which is a slow and rigorous brewing whose origin dates back to the Edo period.

Its soft and round aromatic profile enveloped in a silky texture, reveals notes of apple, pear, and dried fruits as well as a slight acidity and a tasty umami which vanish in a clean and clear finish.

Shirakabegura Kimoto Ginjo can be eaten fresh but also at room temperature, and accompanies all white meats and fish-based dishes in sauce.

For more than a century, Maison Takara Shuzo, famous for its production of mirin, shochu and sake, has been producing all of its premium sakes in Nada (Hyogo) in the Shirakabegura brewery, which produces in an entirely artisanal and modern way.

This junmai sake is brewed and made entirely from Gohyakumangoku rice. A traditional kimoto method is used in the brewing process for this sake, and this special method can be traced back to the Edo period in Japan.

This sake can be enjoyed both cold or hot, and is pairs well with fish, chicken or vegetarian dishes.

Alcohol: 15.5%
Volume: 640ml

Junmai Sake is brewed using only rice, water, yeast and koji. There are no other additives. To qualify as a Junmai, there is technically no minimum milling requirement, but the sake must be the “pure rice” style… no added distilled alcohol allowed.

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
