Textured. Smoky. Touch of Sweet.
Brewed with a newly developed rice called Kan no Mai that withstands cold climates and is full of smoky, saline rice flavors - creating a one of a kind flavor profile.
The rice name is a word made of the Japanese characters "Kan," translated to "God," and "Mai," meaning dance or stage. The specific milling rate of 68% employed in this sake results in a unique flavor profile that has hints of smoke, sweetness, and a very clean finish.
Textured and layered, smoky and sweet, with a cleansing acidity at the end. Simply constructed rice notes with malt-like flavor, and dry on the finish thanks to the prominent acidity.
Yakatori, grilled chicken, sweet potato gnocchi.
Serve: Slightly Chilled
Rice: Kan No Mai
