Are you an adventurous eater and drinker? Beginning your meal with a delicious appetizer is a great start, but to get the best dining experience, you also want a beverage that can complement your food. Junmai Daiginjo is the choice for you.

This Junmai DaiGinjo is exceptionally smooth and well-balanced with a bright ginjo bouquet, rich fruity taste and an elegant finish. When served chilled, it has a fragrant nose with complex, fruity aromas and flavors of honeydew melon, cantaloupe, watermelon, Asian pear, and banana. Pale gold and bright in the glass, it is full-bodied in the mouth with a fine, silky texture, and a lasting, lightly juicy finish with building savoriness. This is the first junmai daiginjo sake produced with 100% American-harvested Yamadanishiki (sake specific) rice.

This handcrafted junmai daiginjo was born as the 30th Anniversary Commemorative product of Takara Sake USA Inc. in 2013. Against sake from Japan and around the world, this American-brewed junmai daiginjo consistently ranks in the top of its class.

We are the number one sake store in America. We know you'll enjoy exploring a new culture and experiencing fresh tastes when you pour a cold glass of our Sho Chiku Bai sake Junmai Daiginjo.

What Is Sake?

Sake is a Japanese rice wine created through the fermenting of rice. Unlike other wines, sake should be consumed young and enjoyed within a few days of opening, because we do not rely on artificial preservatives.

Our Junmai Daiginjo sake is made from pure rice — we use water, koji mold spore and yeast to ferment it. The taste makes a perfect complement to soft cheese as well as seafood. You'll want to keep several bottles of Sho Chiku Bai Junmai Daiginjo on hand so that you don't run out at your next party.
