TASTING NOTEEthereal and delicate in keeping with the shizuku (free run) method, but showing Shichi Hon Yari's style with toasty notes of brown butter.FOOD PAIRINGDelicious on its own, gently chilled, or excellent with.
“Shizuku” means “drops,” because the sake is not pressed, but rather allowed to drip out of cloth bags filled with the finished brew. Shizuku daiginjos are light and ethereal. This is a junmai daiginjo but maintains the Shichi Hon Yari style which is earthy and rustic. The pressed version of this sake was in the top group of Robert Parker’s recent tasting of 800 sakes.
