Sho Chiku Bai Extra Dry

Sho Chiku Bai Extra Dry


1.5 L

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.

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.

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.
