Produced by Asahi Shuzo Brewery, Dassai 23 is a premium sake of junmai daiginjo type, which means that the rice used has been polished to more than 50% and no alcohol has been added. As its name suggests, this premium sake has a remaining grain percentage of 23% so that only the noblest part of the grain remains; the heart.
Rich in fruity aromas of ripe fruit, apple and pear and with great finesse, Dassai 23 is an ideal introduction to traditional Japanese beverages, and goes very well with raw or cooked foods such as red meats, cheeses and desserts.
Sake or nihonshu is a Japanese alcoholic beverage of 14 to 17% by volume, made from a mixture of water, yeast and steamed rice, a small part of which has been inoculated with a microscopic fungus, the koji, to allow for better fermentation.

Brewery Asahi Shuzo - Dassai
Founded in 1948 in the Yamaguchi region, Asahi Shuzo is now famous around the world for its Dassai Sake line.
Nestled in a lush mountainous region not far from the town of Iwakuni, Asahi Shuzo was producing ordinary sake and was in decline when Hiroshi Sakurai took over the small family business in 1984 and decided to shift production to high-end sake.
