Gekkeikan: Futsu-Shu Sake

Gekkeikan: Futsu-Shu Sake

This traditional-style sake is brewed in America with the same process that has been used in Japan by Gekkeikan since the 1630's. It's a soft beverage best paired with saké or enjoyed just by itself.

For this tasting, I served the sake at just below room temperature, at 62˚F. The nose was very subtle with a hint of jasmine. The palate also brought subtle elements that I would characterize as rice - literally smooth grain flavor, ginger, orange, nutmeg and plum at the finish. This is a neutral to sweet sake that lays back for a super subtle experience. With that said, the flavors are very complimentary of each other. There is good balance of spice and sweet with the overall undertone of rice. Cheers!
