Yasakaturu

$350.00 Sale price

Kame no O is a rice strain first grown in the Meiji era in Yamagata prefecture. Due to its delicacy, it is very difficult to mass produce using modern farming methods and the production volume dropped significantly. Farmers in Tango prefecture re-introduced this strain in year 2000 and Yasakaturu, using this rice, produced this clean, crisp and “easy to drink” sake. Since the rice is grown only with contracted farmers in Tango, the amount of rice available is strictly limited and as a result, the amount of this sake produced each year is also limited.

Tasting Notes:

This sake has a nose of sweet melon. It has a balanced palate that consists mostly of “umami” with a tint of sweetness and tanginess. The finish is dry and medium in length and is not overpowering. This “easy to drink” sake is very suitable for beginners or drinkers that are not used to the taste of sake.

This sake is excellent with:

  • Apéritif
  • Yakitori/Teppanyaki/Grilled Meat
  • Antipasti/Cold Cuts
