This sake uses highly polished Omachi rice from Okayama Prefecture. Omachi rice creates a brew that is more herbal and spicy and this sake is no exception. The Nito Omachi 48 starts like a daiginjo (pears and honeysuckle) but takes a u-turn midway and finishes slightly bitter and peppery, thanks to its pronounced acidity. Have this sake chilled – the brewer recommends pairing this sake with gorgonzola and honey, and lambchops.
From the back label: "Only those who run after two hares will catch both."
