This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
“Namazake lets you taste sake with intense flavor and fresh effervescent texture,” says Takahiro Nagayama, the toji and owner of Taka Brewery. On making this namazake he says, “First, I had to fully understand how namazake changes over time. Due to the reaction of the enzyme, the peptide becomes glucose and becomes sweet. Due to this change, the texture becomes heavier over time, and it is no longer balanced. Because of this, I used yeast #7 to give more acidity and robust flavor than our regular Noble Arrow.” Enjoy aromas of green apple and mint, an olive oil texture, and a crisp mineral flavor thanks to the use of hard water. Sip this sake chilled with raw oysters or sashimi. “This sake has been aging since December. I designed our namazake to taste best when it arrives in the U.S. and into the hands of [Sake Gumi] members.”
