This distinctive sake has a full body and richness in flavors like macadamia nuts, banana bread and undertones of chocolate. The full flavor and earthy complexity pair well with a variety of dishes. You can sip on it before dinner or unwind with a glass following a long but rewarding day at the office. Sho Chiku Bai Organic Nama will quickly become a regular part of your routine. Brighten your evening by enjoying this unique beverage, and feel good about the green organic elements we use to create the best Nama sake.

Unlike other sake types, Sho Chiku Bai Organic Nama is micro-filtered rather than being pasteurized by heat. While high temperatures can change the subtle flavors of sake, the micro-filtration process retains the original nama (young and fresh) flavors. It is rich and savory with comforting aromas and is brewed in Berkeley with premium organic Calrose rice polished to 60%. This junmai sake is one of the best food pairing sake along with Sho Chiku Bai Classic Junmai.

What is the Tradition of Japanese Sake?

When you purchase sake, you should understand something of the tradition of this beverage. It originated in Japan more than a thousand years ago, created by the fermentation of rice until it turned into a wine. The drink became popular in the Imperial Court, and it appeared at many weddings and funerals. The Japanese loved the drink so much that they began to serve it during other occasions as well.

Today, sake has become popular worldwide, and that includes the United States, where Takara Sake USA Inc. is the nation's number one sake store. With a huge selection including Sho Chiku Bai organic Nama and many other options, we have a sake for every taste.

Pairing Suggestions

This sake is enjoyable on its own or with dishes such as cold buckwheat noodles, sushi (including mackerel), broiled lobster (without butter), or cold, thinly sliced smoked duck. It’s also a versatile sake for cheese pairing, taking on the character of a wheat biscuit when served with brie, manchego, gruyere or cambozola.
