Shikisakura Double Daiginjo (Junmai Daiginjo & Daiginjo)
Our newest addition to the Mr Otaru family of sake, Shikisakura hails from Tochigi, famed for some of the best strawberries in the world and also producing really high grade Japanese beef.
We've put a package together for the 2 most exciting bottles from the brewery that are sure to put a smile on faces. Both are IWC Medal winning sakes.
The Daiginjo is the brewery's flagship expression, featuring a 35% in-house polish on Hyogo Yamada Nishiki rice. A faint and light sweetness with a subtle floral aroma belies the elegance that follows. A testament to the sake's outstanding quality, the Shikisakura Manyohijiri Daiginjo is proudly served on JAL's First Class International flights.
The Junmai Daiginjo is light, dry & clean tasting with a gentle ginjo aroma. Incredibly smooth and very easy to drink. Brewed 'Karakuchi' (dry), expect light notes of mint & melon with a refreshing brightness, and short dry finish.
Limited quantities available.
