Organic sake is a smart choice for your palate and your conscience. The careful process of creating organic Junmai sake relies on using organic ingredients, such as rice grown without chemical fertilizers. You can feel good about buying our Sho Chiku Bai SHO Junmai Organic. Every time you bring your glass to your lips, you'll make a commitment to sustainable farming and a better world. Plus, you'll get a versatile Sho Chiku Bai Sho Junmai whose flavor changes with its temperature.

At room temperature, this premium junmai sake offers a balance of subtle fruit and dry grains. Aromas include yellow apple, wheat bread, and dry oatmeal. Flavors are Asian pear, oatmeal, spice and a touch of salt. When warm, the savory attributes are amplified. Scents of buckwheat, mushroom, spice, and damp, forest floor lead into flavors of bran muffin with walnuts, brown banana, mineral, and salt.

Why Is Sake So Popular?

Sake originated as a fermented rice wine beverage served by the Japanese at special occasions, such as religious ceremonies, weddings and seasonal festivals. The country soon realized that that wasn't nearly enough time to enjoy sake, and the beverage has gradually become a savored, everyday part of life in Japan. Americans have also caught on to the appeal of Sake and many types within junmai sake, such as this Sho Chiku Bai Junmai Organic. We've been brewing premium junmai sake in America for more than three decades, and its popularity continues to rise.
