Akashi-Tai Junmai Daiginjo Genshu
The highlight of the Akashi-Tai connoisseur range, this sake is made with top-quality yamadanishiki rice milled to 50% and is bottled undiluted. The result is a well-balanced, medium-bodied sake with stacks of fruity flavour – lemon and orange with melon and grass notes. It's got enough going on to drink on its own but isn't so heavy as to overwhelm a meal – perfect with food.

Akashi-Tai is the best expression of everything we believe in. A true artisan sake, handmade in small batches by our Toji (master brewer) Kimio Yonezawa and his close team of trusted craftsmen. We brew using traditional methods, and only with the highest quality, locally produced ingredients. Most notably the rice and the water, both of which Hyogo is renowned for throughout Japan and the wider sake world.
It is the embodiment of Akashi Sake Brewery’s spirit, and a prime example of characterful sake from Hyogo – the birthplace of sake.
Tasting Notes: Well pronounced nose with melon, peach, green grass and sage characteristics. Superbly balanced on the palate evoking peach, tropical fruits particularly papaya and crystallised fruit notes as well. Very subtle umami on a long lasting finish.
