||NIGORI (unfiltered: bold
NIGORI is the way sake first appeared when it was
brewed for the Imperial Court in Kyoto as well as for most of its 2,000
year history. It is coarsely-filtered and the sweetest of all our types of
sake. It is especially delicious with very spicy foods. The bottle should
be shaken each time before pouring due to the high rice content that
settles in the bottom of the bottle. It should always be served chilled.
||NAMA SAKE (draft-style, fresh
NAMA SAKE is a draft-style sake that is purified
not by heat pasteurization but rather through micro-filterization. Since
high temperatures can often change the subtle flavors of sake, this micro-filterization
process better retains all of the original flavors of sake. "Nama
" means fresh, indicating that it is bottled immediately after
production rather than being aged for a few months like our other sakes.
It should always be served chilled.
GINJO is a special reserve connoisseur class of
sake. Most sakes are brewed with rice that has been milled 30%. For our
Ginjo we use rice that is polished over 50%. Additionally, we use a
special strain of yeast that allows for fermentation at a cooler
temperature. The result of the slower, longer process is a silky-smooth,
rich and "fruity " flavor. It should be served at room
temperature or chilled.
