Cloudy silver color. Aromas and flavors of banana-lime keffir, warm rice pudding, macadamia nougat, and buttercream frosting with a supple, vibrant, fruity medium body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-length finish with notes of spiced jicama and honey roasted nuts finish. A pleasant Nigori for desserts.

Nigori Sake

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.
