Akabu Shuzo is guided by their motto Creating a New History, improving upon craftmanship and technology to make better sake. This junmai is curious as it has an aroma more akin to a junmai ginjo – with a bouquet of nectarine, meyer lemon, and peaches. The taste is also delicate for a junmai with citrus flavors and freshly steamed rice. The folks at Akabu love to drink their junmai chilled with negima and tsukune. We also loved this with green beans in gomadare sesame sauce. Fun fact: the label depicts a red samurai, designed by an employee at the brewery. Warm it up to bring out velvety caramel flavors!
