Kunizakari Nigorizake (國盛 にごり酒)

Nigorizake (濁り酒) is made of coarsely pressed sake mash. It retains much of the rice solids in the moromi (fermented sake mash), resulting in sake of cloudy or milky colour. Nigori means "turpid' or "unclear". Kunizakari Nigorizake (國盛 にごり酒) is characterised by the velvety, creamy flavour peculiar to moromi. It used to be sold only to brewery visitors; nowadays, it is available all year round in 200ml cups and in 720ml and 1.8l bottles. Its smooth sweetness and fine maltiness should be chilled at around 5°C. Shake before serving. Pair with savoury and spicy dishes.
