勝山 Katsuyama Chinese New Year Special Set
Hyojuku 3 yr Junmai Daiginjo Sake, Katsuyama - 勝山純米大吟醸3年氷熟貯蔵酒
This 35% polished Junmai Daiginjo has been matured under -5 degree Celsius for 3 years. It is a medium to full bodied sake with intense and complex favours of rice and fruit and balanced with rich umami. This below zero degree aged sake is far more refined and mellowed than one that is freshly brewed, but because of the low temperature, it retains its youthful charm and pureness. Packaged in a beautiful limited-edition red-and-gold droplet bottle including a gift box, this is an experience not to be missed. This is ideally enjoyed slight chilled, with more intense favoured richer sashimi or even wagyu shabu shabu.
Yamakan Daiginjo, Katsuyama & Abekan - 大吟醸ヤカマン, 勝山 x 阿部勘
The purpose of this sake was to create a complex, balanced sake, which spoke to a combined brewery style and spirit of friendship and innovation between brewers in Miyagi. 5 unique batches Junmai Ginjos from Katsuyama and Daiginjos from Abekan were meticulously blended to create this sake. The result is fabulous. Very elegant and refined in the glass while also displaying a myriad of bright fruit flavours. Enjoy this sake slightly chilled and pair with lighter-flavoured sauces or fine sashimi.
Sensho Masamune Tokubetsu Junmai, Katsuyama – 戰勝政宗, 特別純米酒
The goal was to achieve the true essence of freshly harvested Hitomebore rice from Sendai in this lovely rich brew. The resulting sake is bursting with rice flavour, full of umami and round on the pallet. The bottle represents the celebration of “Hanami” or cherry blossom viewing during Spring in Japan. Just as the cherry blossom is a true symbol of Japan, the Hanami En is a quintessential Japanese Junmai, helmed from Sendai, the home of Junmai.
