Bright silver color. Aromas and flavors of milk soaked raisin toast, sweet potato fries, starfruit and cashew fruit, and floral talc with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a polished, interesting, breezy finish revealing elements of powdered milk, pineapple-plantain relish, and pepper finish. A bright and robust futsu-shu.

Futsu-Shu Sake

Wine Glass Sake.jpg
Serve in a Stemless Wine Glass
Saké that has less than 30% of the unwanted elements milled away is called Futsu-shu and is politely referred to as “bulk saké”. Futsu-shu is not a regulated beverage by the Japanese government and may have a variety of additives including sweeteners, colorings and bulk alcohol.

These are not considered as refined or as flavorful as the finest sakes, so keep that in mind when selecting sake for exotic cuisine. These are the sakes that should be served warm.
