Hakkaisan Junmai Daiginjo (純米大吟醸 八海山)

Hakkaisan Junmai Daiginjō (純米大吟醸 八海山) is made of Yamdanishiki rice milled to 45% (kōjimai) and Yamadanishiki, Miyamanishiki, Gohyakumangoku, and other varieties (kakemai). It is brewed with handmade kōji and Raiden-sama no Shimizu (雷電様の清水) spring water from the melting snow of Mount Hakkaisan, resulting in a junmai sake with a sharp and persistent flavour, typical of Hakkaisan, despite being a pure sake. It is a premium food sake with a clear, clean taste and an elegant sweetness that gently spreads to complement the food.

Hakkaisan Brewery was founded in Minami-Uonuma, Niigata, one of Japan's premier and most famous sake brewing regions, in 1922. The brewery derives its name from Mount Hakkai (八海山), a sacred mountain that is part of the Echigo Sanzan (越後三山) mountain range, the spring of the clear waters of the Haikkaisan river system. Hakkaisan represents the local sake tradition in Niigata and produces sake, shochu, plum brandy, beer (Rydeen Beer), whisky and mirin (cooking sake). In 2013, Timothy Sullivan, the founder of Urban Sake, was appointed brand ambassador of Hakkaisan.

Perfect elegance and understatement

Hakkaisan's Junmai Daiginjo is an embodiment of elegance. The scent has a delicate fruitiness (think green apples and melons) and creamy notes (like custard and chocolate). It starts gently, with a touch of freshness, leading to an unexpectedly dry and clean sensation on the palate. There are hints of floral elements. The ending is brief yet soft. It's a refined and understated choice with a nuanced character that complements a meal beautifully. Truly splendid.
