A particularly smooth Sake with rice malt and a slight citrus flavour.
“Daichi” means earth in Japanese, and the Organic Yamada rice (considered the best Sake rice) adds plenty of earthy and umami rich notes to this wonderful sake. Sake like this (full of umami and richer in flavour) are best tried warm (40C).
Asahikiku was founded in 1900 and specialised in traditional style Junmai sake, with an emphasis on flavour over aroma and using local ingredients particularly rice.
Asahikiku has a small output of only 108 000L and brews in winter to allow for a low temperature fermentation creating a mellow sake but one full of flavour.
A great sake especially one to enjoy with food.
Polishing Ratio: 60%
