Tenryohai YK-35 Junmai Daiginjo
The most complex sake.
Product also available in store : 28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
The YK-35 is the most accomplished shizuku-type sake (sake made with the drip drip method). Its name refers to the sake rice variety "Yamadanishiki", the yeast "Koro" used to create the rice koji, and its polishing rate of 35%, which are guarantees of exceptional product. Time is of the essence in the manufacture of the YK-35. Intense polishing, drip drip method production and two years of ageing make this Junmai Daiginjo an exceptional product.
Characteristics : A very fruity sake, full of subtlety. Balanced and complex, it combines notes of fruit and gourmand flowers. Round and soft in the mouth, this sake exudes balance and harmony.
Our specialist's comment : A superb sake all soft and roundness
Consume in moderation.
Alcohol should not be consumed by pregnant women.
The Tenryohai Brewery
Tenryohai Brewery, located in the middle of the lush nature of Sado Island, is the result of the merger of 3 sake houses in December 1983. Until recently, the company's products were reserved for very local customers on Sado Island and Niigata, but the decline in the island's population has had an impact on sales, discouraging potential buyers. The new president, Mr. Kato, challenged himself to introduce his sake to all of Japan and then to the rest of the world.
The 24-year-old Sen'ichi Kato, who took over Tenryohai in March 2018, intends to free himself from the conservatism of his predecessors, who wanted to limit himself to a regional distribution. Niigata sake blending with all dishes, Sen'ichi Kato decided to promote Tenryohai's know-how internationally.
