Emishiki World Peace Junmai Ginjo

This sake emphasizes the full flavor of the gorgeous ginjo aroma (derived from ethyl caproate), which is a characteristic of flower yeast. The rising scent is glossy, similar to pineapple and lychee. When tasting, you can experience the soft sweetness that supports the scent and the full flavor of acidity that creates a slight astringent taste. World Peace carries great balance of aroma, sweetness, and acidity. It has a wide range of indications when combined with dishes as if it were contained in the mouth as a sauce, rather than being washed away with acid. A sake meant to be eaten with food together, rather than drunk separately.

Tasting Notes from Sake School of America Specialist:

Elegant aroma of pear, lychee, and honeydew melon. Soft and pure mouthfeel on entrance, developing a curvaceous figure midway, but finishes lean and smooth with a balanced elegant finish. A sake meant to be eaten with food together rather than drunk separately, especially with raw and cooked seafood and lean beef.


Brewery Profile:
This brewery is located in the 50th Minakuchi-shuku on the former Tokaido, in a mountainous area 20km away from Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture. Shiga Prefecture is known for its Shigaraki ware, one of the "Six Ancient Kilns" in Japan, and is famous as the main production area of raw rice. In recent years, the mellow sweetness, which has been a characteristic of local sake since ancient times, has been pushed to the front and highlighted in Emishiki sake. Brewing is led by Mr. Atsunori Takeshima, the head of the family and the fifth head of this brewery.
