Taiyozakari Junmai Daiginjo [Limited Brew!]
Admittedly, we're no pros when it comes to Sakes (we're excellent at drinking though, or so we think...) So we got a jet-setter friend, who's also a hard core Sake drinker, to recommend her favourite Sakes.
Not just Sakes that she'd love to drink, but Sakes that she'd be willing to hand carry home for friends and family.
We were then introduced to Taiyo Sake Brewery, a multiple award-winning Sake brewery based in the prefecture of fine rice -- Niigata.
The rest is history. (Story ends here because we drank too much. On another note, please drink responsibly!)
About Taiyo Sake Brewery:
Taiyo Sake Brewery is a ten-time gold medal winner at the largest and most acknowledged sake competition in Japan, the National New Sake Awards.
Taiyo's average rice polishing ratio is under 60% (meaning 40% of the grain is milled away, leaving a grain 60% of its original size), while the national average is 70%. Taiyo's unusually high polishing ratio means that most of substances which cause unpleasant flavors and aromas are removed. As a result, the remaining high quality starch brings a light and refreshing flavor to our sake.
Brewed with 100% Koshitanrei sake rice that has been polished to the limit of 40%. Koshitanrei is a premium sake rice developed in Niigata. Full use is made of our brewers' daiginjo techniques to create this award winning junmai daiginjo sake. Limited Brew
