From the very first sip, this premium Japanese rice wine offers a rich aroma and full-bodied flavor. As a Junmai Daiginjo-class sake, it has the characteristic weight - the sense of body or fullness that it feels on the palate - but it is polished to a refined level that maintains a refreshing taste. Despite its mainly sweet flavor, it won't feel heavy or overpowering. For the best experience, savor its complexity slowly in a large wine glass. This sake has a polishing ratio of 40%, a Sake meter value of -3, and an alcohol content of 16%.
Can you truly distinguish this exquisite sip as Japanese sake? Often confused with wine, "HASSENBLAGE" is a coined word combining "Hassen" and the French term "Assemblage". Our luxurious blend of four types of Aomori-grown rice, polished to 40%, features "Masshigura," which won the 2020 Special A prize, the rare "Reimei" rice exclusive to the Hachinohe area, Aomori's signature sake rice "Hana-omoi," and the southern region's only sake rice, "Gin-eboshi." Each rice contributes to a unique flavor, creating a perfect balance when combined. Indulge in the exquisite taste of Hassenblage, which sets itself apart from the rest. (Alcohol content 16%)
Ah, Isaribi, a name as enchanting as firelight on waves, inspired by bonfires used to lure squids in Japan. Capturing Hachinohe's coastal essence, this exquisite sake pairs divinely with seafood. A proud "Mutsu Hassen" creation, its refined dry taste offers versatility—refreshing when chilled in summer, and comforting when warmed in winter. Boasting a 60% polishing ratio, a +6 sake meter value, and 15% alcohol content, Isaribi is a symphony of sensations, whisking you away to a world of maritime elegance and wit. So, raise your glass and toast to the fire on the water—Isaribi.
