Like Champagne, Gassan Sparkling Cloud is a naturally sparkling sake whose fine bubbles are obtained by the addition of sake lees, leading to a second fermentation in the bottle.
The "pop" when the cork is opened makes it an original and ideal accompaniment for the celebration of many occasions. It can also be enjoyed as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to cooked vegetables, cheeses, desserts, but should be served chilled.
Gassan, which means "between the mountain and the moon", refers to the castle built on the Gassan Tomita mountain not far from the brewery in a region renowned for the purity of its spring water. The Yoshida house began brewing sake in 1743 for the Hirose clan during the Edo period and can therefore boast an ancestral know-how.
