Do you enjoy an after-dinner drink to help you wind down after a long day at the office? If so, our Nigori Crème de Sake is for you. Reminiscent of a Chardonnay from California, our Sho Chiku Bai Crème de Sake is a refreshing change of pace. You'll crave its unique flavor and texture once you sample it for the first time. Why not indulge in a glass to unwind from a long week or start a weekend off on a high note?

Milky-white Nigori Crème de Sake radiates aromas of melon, marshmallow, and cream, with a slightly smooth, fulsome texture and flavors of melon and vanilla ice cream. Slightly less sweet than Takara’s Sho Chiku Bai Nigori Silky Mild, its finish is lightly savory, with hints of salt and spice.

The Japanese Tradition of Sake

Many Americans enjoy drinking sake, but they don't know much about its history. Sake is made from fermented rice. Sake (rice wine) became popular in Japan more than 1,000 years ago, and it was consumed during special occasions, such as funerals and weddings, in the days of the Imperial Court.

In time, this beloved beverage became more of an everyday indulgence. Its popularity has spread throughout the rest of the world as well — in the United States, many people love sake as an alternative to traditional wine and beer.
