Akashi-Tai Junmai Daiginjo uses only the very best of this variety - the top grade of the most highly prized Yamada Nishiki rice grown in a district of Hyogo so renowned for fine sake-making rice it was even given its own designation of Special A Zone.

This fine rice is polished until only 40% of the grain remains, after which, two months are devoted to nurturing the Akashi-Tai sake to completion - about twice as long as most conventional sakes.

Polishing away the outer portion of the rice grain results in a sake that combines rich yet crisp flavour with sophisticated aroma and depth.

Limited stock.

Fragrant, complex, delicious. Buy a vacuum sealer and keep in the fridge!
