Hazy silver color. Aromas and flavors of piña colada, lemongrass tea, and rice pudding with a satiny, bright, fruity sweet medium body and a polished, easy finish revealing notes of coconut custard finish. A fun flavored sake with a sweet tropical twist, try in piña coladas, with juices, or on ice.

It should come as no surprise that there are no flavored sakes, joining many other categories of flavored spirits. Most of these are manufactured in the USA; flavors include Fuji apple, raspberry and lychee. These are usually much sweeter than a traditional sake, as they are clearly appealing to the youth market. Pair with Thai and Fusion cuisine, especially with sweet and sour preparations.
