Shochikubai Organic Nama (draft) sake is made with OCIA certified rice with no preservatives, no alcohol, and no sulfites added. Organic means that the sake did not go through the process of pasteurization and was rather micro-filtered, which retains the fresh flavor of the rice. This is a sake with a punch, and when compared to a ginjo, one might get an impression that this sake is ‘strong,’ even though the alcohol level is no higher than other sake. Due to the fact that it was not pasteurized, considerable amount of rice flavor and sweetness covers your mouth. This is a full-bodied and rich sake that goes well with stronger flavored foods and will leave you with a clean dry finish.
