What you can expect:
The Katori 90 is made with locally grown organic Koshi-Hikari rice which is a table rice variety. Polished to only 90% and made with the traditional Kimoto method using wild yeast, this Sake is made to represent what Sake tasted like over a hundred years ago - think ‘liquid rice’ in a bottle!
Polishing off only 10% of the rice, leaving a majority of the grain intact including its fats, proteins and enzymes provides the raw material for a robust and full-flavoured beverage.
A very rice dominated aroma, the palate shows very bright acidity with a strong savoury edge. The finish is long, dry and powerful. Please try it at room temperature, then try it as a hot sake to enjoy the deep and profound umami.
