Tetsuya Sakai makes sakes that don't just survive, but thrive for years without the need for pasteurisation. This one captures the character of his Yamada Nishiki rice. In recent years, he's been milling his rice less and less, and the results speak for themselves. Store and serve cool.
What you can expect:
A unique vibrant aroma of gooseberry and celery with pleasing earthiness. Delicious on its own and amazing pairing with nutty dishes.
