Dassai 23 Umeshu 720ml


The “Dassai Umeshu“.  It’s a honkaku umeshu meaning it contains only the base alcohol which is DASSAI 23, sugar, and plums — thus no added flavoring, coloring, or souring agents. The liquor used in the new umeshu is of course Dassai’s world-famous Junmai Daiginjo 23%, in which Yamadanishiki rice being milled down to 23%.

To craft the ultimate Junmai Daiginjo sake Dassai 23, Yamada-Nishiki rice is first polished down to 23%, making it one of the most polished sakes in the world. It's polished 24 hours a day for 7 days straight—that's 168 hours spent on polishing!

Tasting Notes: This exquisite sake is exceedingly rare because 77% of each rice grain used to make it is gently milled away. This rigorous and skilled polishing unlocks all the sweet fruity nuances that can often be overwhelmed by some of the more umami and funky notes of less refined rice. The result is a velvet-textured and ethereal sake that’s delicately floral with notes reminiscent of honey, melon, peach, pear sorbet, dried pineapple and candied chestnut.

ABV: 8% / Rice Polishing: 23% / Rice variety: Yamadanishiki / Serving temp: On the rocks, Chilled or Room Temperature

Food Pairing: light desserts - mousse, sorbert and fruit tart.
