Asahi Shuzō Kubota Senjyu Junmai Ginjō (久保田 千寿 純米吟醸)

Asahi Shuzō's Kubota Senjyu Junmai Ginjō (久保田 千寿 純米吟醸) is made of Gohyakumangoku rice. It is well-balanced and a perfect food sake with an elegant, refreshing taste and a gentle aroma. Chilled, it shows hints of tartness and a crisp finish. At room temperature, the tartness comes further to the fore, along with rich echoes of rice. Ideal for serving with lighter fare as well as heavier, creamy dishes. It goes well not only with Japanese but also with Western and Chinese food.

Asahi Shuzō (朝日酒造株式会社) is based in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture. Founded in 1830, Asahi Sake Brewery strives to create premium sake using Niigata's water and rice. The company was converted into a public company in 1920, and a distribution network called Asahiyama-kai (朝日山会) was established in 1926. To keep up with modern times and stay innovative, it launched sparkling sake in 1969 and junmai in 1971. The Kubota (久保田) brand was introduced in 1985 by the then-president, Hirasawa Toru (平澤亨), and production manager, Shima Eiji (嶋悌司). As the tastes of the urban population changed and local demand was declining, Asahi Shuzō focused on tanrei karakuchi (淡麗辛口), light and crisp sake, and thereby created a new market. In October 2020, it released its first liqueur, its yuzu-based Honyuzu (本柚子).

Asahi's Senju Junmai Ginjo comes in a stylish transparent-blue bottle. A nose of koji and dried fruits and a creamy aroma of yoghurt. Elegant, with a distinct rice taste. Light body, with a soft, medium-dry finish. Gentler and milder at room temperature. Very delectable!
