Fukucho Sparkling Junmai, “Seaside”, Imada Hiroshima
A firm fleur favourite that we’ve been pouring since we opened. Made by Miho Imada, one of only 20 women Toji (master brewers), out of 1200 breweries in Japan. Bottle fermentation gives this sake a light carbonation – bubbles that sparkle like Champagne! A perfect match for seafood, the flavours are crisp and dry with lemon candy, pear and bread aromas.
Senkin Daiginjo Nigori ‘Yakidaramu Snowman’
From the first look, you will tell that this cloudy sake is a truly unique premium sake unlike any other you have tried. Coarsely filtered, which gives it the appearance of milk in the bottle and a luscious, slightly effervescent texture, it’s inspired by the high-acid wines of France and Germany, which are famous for their food pairing superpowers.
Fukucho Junmai Ginjo Muroka Genshu Hattanso, Imada Hiroshima
This is a beautiful sake made in the style of the Edo period, and the only one to use Hattanso rice; an ancient native variety revived by the brewery, which is local to Hiroshima and notoriously difficult to grow. Unfined and undiluted, this highly fragrant sake is a favourite of Adam’s, rich and smooth with big juicy fruit notes and a little nutty spice.
Koshigoi Yuzushu “Yuzu Party”
Hailing from Chiba, the biggest surfing spot in Japan, this is a super juicy, summery blend of sake and fresh yuzu juice – a native Japanese citrus that throws fragrant and sour mandarin vibes. Think limoncello via Japan. This will be served long with soda as a refreshing palate cleanser to finish the meal.
