What Is YUKI Nigori Sake?
Takara Sake USA has mastered the art of brewing nigori sake, the foundation of this wonderful blend. By combining a smooth and lightly creamy nigori sake with the rich aromas and essences of fruit, Takara has created a delightfully stimulating aperitif and captivating dessert beverage that is suitable for any occasion.
Like any sake, YUKI Nigori is crafted with:
Yeast and a microbe called koji, which aids the fermentation process
Sake brewing requires a specialized process that only skilled brew masters and teams can complete. Over multiple weeks, the rice is polished and washed, added to cultivated koji and yeast, fermented in fresh water, pressed, pasteurized and filtered for smoothness. Afterward, the concoction ages for three to six months to mellow the strong edge.
Unlike basic sake, nigori sake is unfiltered or coarsely filtered, lending it a milky appearance and creamy texture. The remaining rice solids from fermentation contribute to this appearance and texture. Takara Sake's YUKI Nigori flavored sake is like a perfect cocktail in a bottle.
