Bright silver color. Aromas of cashew nougat, white cake box, banana yogurt, and sticky rice with a velvety, bright, medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, medium-long banana bread pudding, melon in coconut milk, mushroom consommé, and water chestnut finish. A rock-solid, full-strength sake that will shine at the table.

Genshu Sake

Serve in a Stemless Wine Glass
Genshu literally means “cask strength”, and is used to describe sake that has not been diluted. All saké is fermented at 20% alcohol and most have distilled water added to lower the alcohol content to 14-16%. Genshu saké is very full bodied/flavored and should be paired with dishes that are similarly robust in nature.
