Kokuryu Sake Brewing Corporation
Kokuryu labels resound with deep flavor, but what makes them unique is their overall finesse. Sakes with big taste profiles can sometimes be overbearing and lacking in clarity. Kokuryu skillfully avoids this, bringing together rich flavor and delicate balance in a unique expression of the sake-maker’s art.
Rice variety: 500 Mangoku
Yeast: House Yeast
Brewing method: Sokujo
Drinks well with most Japanese foods when heated, especially umami-rich shellfish. Served chilled at 50 degrees, it pairs nicely with beef filet or grilled chicken.
