Dassai is one of the most recognized sake brands in the world created by the Asahi Shuzo brewery which produces only superior grade daiginjo sake.
The set consists of 3 elegant 18cl bottles of the brewery's 3 flagship vintages: Dassai 45, Dassai 39 and Dassai 23. The only difference between these 3 cuvées is their polishing rate ranging from 45% to 23% of the residual rice grain. Asahi Shuzo offers you an initiatory journey into the world of the traditional Japanese drink by focusing on the importance of polishing in the making of sake.
For the tasting, the brewery recommends to start with the Dassai 45, then the 39, and finish with the 23 whose polishing rate is the most important one allowing the heart of the grain to appear. You will be able to discover the difference between the aromatic profiles whose main characteristics are present but will be expressed in a deeper, richer and more complex way as the tasting proceeds.

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.
