Kiyasho Shuzo Takasago Junmai Daiginjo Sake - 720 ml

Product description

The Kiyasho Shuzo Brewery is a small family-owned brewery founded in 1818 in Nabari City of Mie Prefecture. Traditional techniques and craftsmanship combined with modern technology and knowledge have made Jikon one of the most sought-after brands in the market.  

Takasago is the name of the sake brand that Kiyasho brewery was making for centuries until Onishi san came back to the family business and started selling his sakes under Jikon (to live in the moment). Under this ‘pen name’, Onishi san is now making sakes that don’t quite fit under the Jikon banner, experimenting with yeast, rice, fermentation methods.  With a more marked acidity than on Jikon, Oni-san thus sums up the difference between the two brands: Jikon is for the aperitif, while Takasago is for the table.  Takasago sakes are experimental but you can see his signature in all the bottles. In comparison to Jikon, they are quieter, leaner and ethereal.

This junmai daiginjo sake is luxurious yet well restrained with great acidity. In comparison to Kiyasho's infamous Jikon sake, Takasago is more restrained in flavour, but equally clean and well-structured. It has been pasteurized only once and carefully pressed to retain freshness and flavour.  There are limited quantities of this special sake produced.  Snap up this junmai daiginjo when you can!
