Made with rice polished to at least 50% and sometimes much more, junmai daiginjo sake is created using only rice, water, koji and yeast. An ultra-premium sake grade.
Hakutsuru is located in the famed Nada district of Kobe, a leading sake production area. The name Hakutsuru means “white crane”. The crane’s reserved character and graceful appearance along with the cultural association of seeing a crane in flight as an auspicious sign, makes the crane an ideal symbol to represent the excellent quality of Hakutsuru’s sake.
Driven to create a one of a kind sake rice strain to rival Yamada-Nishiki (“the king of rice”), Hakutsuru spent over 10 years developing their own exceptional Hakutsuru Nishiki rice, becoming the first successful crossbreed of Yamadaho and Wataribune in 70 years.
A luxurious sake, mouth-filling and full of flavor, yet delicately refined. Enjoy the elegance of refreshing floral notes of jasmine and orange blossom and savor a hint of vanilla sweetness in the extra-long finish.
Sushi, sashimi, raw oysters, calamari, apricot almond tart.
