Tete Japan Botanicals Aromatic Plum Sake 2016 720ml
Tete’s label says: “I’ve got a secret”. The confidential information is that what’s contained within this cute bottle is quite unlike anything else on Earth.
This aromatic and sweet plum sake has been infused with nine Japanese botanicals – citrus peel, plum flower, ginger root, green tea, lily leaf, cinnamon, sansho pepper and dried bonito (the flakes that add drama to the top of okonomiyaki). The result is a flavour sensation; expect Bakewell tart, cherry cola, ginger ale, sherbet, tropical fruit punch, spiced nuts and more.
From a brewery established in 1688, this is a remarkably innovative rice wine. All at once, it’s tangy, sweet, sour, refreshing, tart, rich and sexy. And what’s even more impressive is that it pairs with the entire meal. Tete’s acidity makes it super food-friendly, and the touch of sweetness is great with hot spice; sweet and umami combinations like barbeque sauce; or with desserts such as frangipane.
Located in the northwest of the Japanese island of Kyushu, Amabuki Brewery is a unique producer, as they use yeasts from locally grown flowers to ferment their sake. Rather than using pesticides, they allow ducks to wander around their paddy fields, picking off any unwanted weeds or insects, their webbed feet gently oxygenating and strengthening the roots of the rice plants.
