Sho Chiku Bai Sake
The number one shop for Junmai and other kinds of sake, Takara has developed a reputation for creating high-quality rice wine that follows many of the traditional Japanese brewing methods. We offer superlative taste and rely on technology for new ways to make sake that are more efficient and produce a better product.
Served chilled this Classic Junmai Sake offers a very fine texture with harmonious aromas and flavors of macadamia nuts, Chai spice (cardamom, nutmeg), vanilla, heavy cream, and freshly sliced bread.
Served at room temperature, notes of mineral, creme fraiche, sourdough bread, custard, umami, and apples emerge.
When warmed to around 100º F., the texture and flavor build, bringing out more intense umami while still retaining softness of texture. Savory elements of salted custard, cocoa nib, banana bread, toasted nuts, and mineral are evident.
