Gumi Gift

This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!

Yoko loves this bottle because it is so unusual for a sake. The aroma starts with black tea and fermented grapes. Fruity and tart like a saison, funky like a natural rose wine, with an herbal finish (think Ricola), Kiuchi Brewery surely achieved its goal to make a sake that stands out from the rest. A note from the brewer, “Asamurasaki is high in acidity. To balance the taste, we preserved the sweetness of the rice by using the whole grain (no milling) hence a lower SMV.” Drink chilled with foods that have bite like radishes or celery pickles.

Since 1996, Kiuchi Brewery, originally a producer of sake, started brewing their own line of fermented ales. They combine the meticulous practices of sake brewing and curious ingredients in their beers. Hoot-hoot!!!
