Ichigo Junmai Ginjo Nama
Description: Established 1688 in the northern Kyushu region, Amabuki has been producing sake earnestly for over 300 years. They make use of locally harvested Saga rice and underground water and to create unique, high grade sake.
The nose on this unpasteurized sake is a collection of pear, honey, flowers and of course strawberry aromas. Why "of course strawberry"? -because this brewery is known for making outstanding sakes using flower and fruit yeasts. And in this case the yeast comes from strawberries, which creates a very fruit forward sake that drinks soft, juicy and fun! But don't be mistaken as this sake does not drink sweet, rather it has layers of fruit tones and "of course" ends with a very nice long strawberry tail. 55% polishing rate.
