About Kikusui Sakamai
Kikusui (Chrysanthemum Mist) Sakamai is fermented at a low temperature for an extended period of time.
This Junmai Daiginko from the Kikusui Brewery offers the traditional and rich flavor of rice. The Kikusui Sakamai uses Kikusui sake rice and this is what sets this drink apart from other sake. The brewery revived the last few grains of Kikusui to offer patrons authentic sake. The Kikusui is considered as the rice most suited for the process of making sake. It offers the best balance in flavors, sweet, salty, sour, hot and bitter. The Kikusui Sakamai offers a delicate aroma and a deep, full bodied flavor. It is best paired with foods such as hot pot and sashimi. Its flavor is further enhanced at room temperature or when it is served chilled.
