Sho Chiku Bai Extra Dry
Do you prefer your drinks without the sweetness that comes with so many wines? If so, our Sho Chiku Bai Extra Dry may be for you. What is dry sake? It has a flavor profile similar to a bold, dry red wine, with so much to offer your palate. You'll find yourself discovering new facets of the taste long after you've taken your final lingering sip. If you prefer savory to sweet, try our best dry sake and see what you think.
Sho Chiku Bai Extra Dry Junmai is a traditional Junmai sake but with very little sweetness. This gives it a lighter, crisper mouthfeel and a clean finish. This, along with its gently savory palate, makes it a good food-pairing sake and also an excellent ingredient in cocktails. A great sake to serve chilled or warmed.
At any temperature, this sake has a core of savory mineral. When warm, aromas and flavors include salted rice, bran, sourdough bread, and parmesan cheese. The warmth also provides a rounder mouthfeel, and brings out a fullness of the body.
At room temperature or chilled, flavors of mineral and lightly toasted sourdough bread emerge, with a touch of salted butter, green almonds, spice, and warm rice.
Sake: A Beautiful Japanese Tradition
Tradition is such a wonderful part of any culture. It binds people together through time. Sake became part of Japanese tradition more than 1,000 years ago. In the time of the Imperial Court, the beverage was served during special occasions, such as weddings, funerals, and special celebrations.
Sake wouldn't be restricted for long — the drink became too popular to limit to just a few appearances a year. People began drinking it year-round, and the beverage gradually made its way West. Today, it enjoys a growing profile in the United States, where Takara Sake USA Inc. is the country's number one sake store.
