Junmai Daiginjo Sake 720ml


We have a whole raft of new sakes arriving, but this is our Buyer’s personal favourite. In his own words: “The texture and mouthfeel of this sake is exquisite. It’s like drinking liquid silk.”

Wonderfully modern, Kubota Junmai Daiginjo (the most refined sake grade) is crafted from pure Gohyakumangoku rice, a variety renowned for its clean flavour. The grains are gently polished until only 50% remains. This removes all the bits that impart the more rustic, umami and rice-y flavours, leaving just the starch and its more delicate and aromatic notes. The result is a crisp and balanced sake with refreshing acidity, rich fruitiness and a gorgeous fragrance – think pineapple, mango, melon, pear, cinnamon, clove and summer florals. Serve this lightly chilled as an aperitif when the sun comes out, maybe accompanied by canapés, agedashi tofu, tempura prawns or sashimi.

Kubota is made at Asahi Shuzo in Niigata, a mountainous Japanese prefecture full of rivers and valleys, and home to Mount Tanigawa. Firm believers that “the quality of sake can never exceed the quality of its ingredients”, Asahi Brewery use only the finest raw materials. They work closely with local farmers to ensure access to the ultimate sake-brewing rice and keep their production techniques a well-guarded secret.
