This savory sake is inspired by local legends of Niigata's annual fox-bride festival. Local lore tells of mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt. Kirin in the distant past, which are claimed to be the lanterns carried in the fox-bride procession. With a 50% polishing rate, this sake could technically qualify as a Junmai Daiginjo, but the savory notes and food pairing versatility identify more with the style expected from Junmai Ginjo.
Aromas of grilled nuts, pistachio and hints of white chocolate. This sake is a great pairing with meat. Try with duck, fig stuffed pork loin or miso glazed cod.
