Akitabare Junmai Spring Snow Sake
Artful fermentations require a keen eye and steady hand to make sure temperatures, alcohol and yeast activity keep an even keel and yield a beautiful, fragrant sake with body, flavour, balance and a lingering grace. Sake compliments food and a table of friends as few libations can. Sake has less acidity than wine, contains no sulfites, generally hovers around 15% alcohol and can express every shade of texture, flavour and fragrance. In order to preserve these delicate qualities, we take great pains to bring sake the way its toji intend. From our refrigerated shipping containers coming from Japan all the way to the walk in cooler in our temperature controlled warehouse, we keep it cool to guarantee the sake arrives in ideal condition just as the sake brewer intended. Rather than drinking it warm the way your grandfather might have done, serve premium sake slightly chilled to reveal more of its delicate subtlety, inviting ways and all the pleasures it possesses.
Sashimi but not sushi. Shrimp even deep fried. Clams, scallops, oysters raw or cooked.
