Fukukomachi Gentle Breeze Junmai Ginjo Sake 720ml

£36.00

Fukukomachi Gentle Breeze is a Junmai Ginjo. The “Junmai” title means it’s a prized premium sake, while “Ginjo” explains that the rice has been highly polished. In this case, the Akita Sake Komachi rice – Akita Prefecture’s most popular sake rice – has been polished to 55% (i.e. 45% of each grain is gently milled away). This removes the more umami flavours, creating something more refined and delicate. It can be heated, but we recommend serving it chilled because this allows the tropical fruits to shine through. It wafts over the palate like a gentle summery breeze, filled with pineapple, mango, grapefruit, lime sorbet, lemon zest, gingerbread spices and a prickle of warming chilli. All in all, it’s an exceptional introduction to the world of fine sake, rivalling many Junmai Daiginjos (the next level up) on quality.

Kimura Shuzo was established in 1615 by a high-ranking samurai family. Based in Akita Prefecture, the bitterly cold and mountainous north of Japan’s main island of Honshu, this brewery creates award-winning sake using the purest water and the finest rice. For over 400 years they’ve concentrated purely on refining the taste of their products, without ever resorting to automated systems, machines and new-fangled technology. So, what you will taste in each bottle of Fukukomachi – the brewery’s prestige brand – is a handmade and traditional process honed over four centuries by masters of their art.
