Hakutsuru Daiginjo has a sweet floral aroma with notes of pear and melon. On the palate, it is silky and light with a sweet, subtle flavor and balanced acidity. The finish is crisp and clean with a slight honey note.
Usually served chilled or at room temperature, Hakutsuru Daiginjo goes well not only with Japanese cuisine but also with Western cuisine including Italian and French dishes among which we recommend strong umami dishes such as veal blanquette or eggplant parmiggiana.
This sake is a daiginjo, which means that it is made from at least 50% polished rice. It is made with a variety of rice specially developed by Hakutsuru, as well as with underground water from the Rokko mountain range, which is low in iron but rich in phosphorus, calcium and potassium, making it a hard water suitable for brewing sake.
In Hakutsuru breweries, the manufacturing processes such as washing, steaming, malting, fermenting and pressing are carried out by hand, and all the yeast used comes from home-breeding, including one specially developed to ferment slowly at low temperatures, which is ideal for preserving the delicate aromas while brewing a daiginjo.
With its well-balanced taste and fruity, refreshing aroma, this vintage is recommended for those who wish to learn about sake.

Brewery Hakutsuru Sake
Founded in 1743 in Kobe, in the Nada district, by Jihei Kano, Hakutsuru is a historic house of sake and one of the leading brands in Japan. The brewery is distinguished by its history but also by a complete mastery of the entire production chain, from the cultivation of rice to the production of sake.
Hakutsuru has thus designed its own variant of Nishiki rice, grown in Tamba-Sasayama in Hyōgo prefecture. With its 275 years of experience, Hakutsuru has managed to strike a balance between artisanal production and volume since the brand is very present in Japan but is also a major export player with distribution of its products in more than 55 countries.
If sake remains its flagship product, the Hakutsuru house has also developed its offer of other Japanese alcohols such as gin, umeshu or, more recently, whisky with the single malt Tancho.
