Akashi Tai is a junmai daiginjo sake made from the highly prized Yamadanishiki rice grown in the Hyogo region. This fine rice is polished until only 38% of the grain remains, after which two full months are spent from breeding to completion.
Expressing a pronounced nose with melon, lemon, bitter orange, green grass and sage, Akashi Tai Junmai Daiginjo also offers a beautiful balance between mineral and bitter flavors that gives a long finish without ever being too strong.
