Silvery straw color. Aromas and flavors of creamy rice pudding, cajeta, papaya custard pie, and banana creme fraiche with a lightly tannic, bright, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, buoyant finish with nuances of spiced pineapple, vanilla caramel bonbon, honeyed radish, and rice water finish. A fun dessert sake that is sure to please.

Nigori Sake

Wine Glass Sake.jpg
Serve in a Stemless Wine Glass
Nigori saké is unfiltered, appearing cloudy, and is the way saké has been brewed in Japan for much of its 2000 year history. It’s sweeter than most sakés, and many people enjoy its nut-like quality. It pairs well with more spicy/savory foods and works best with non-Japanese Asian cuisines such as Thai and Korean or seafood prepared with a fruit sauce.
