A top quality sake and the entry point to Akashi-Tai's connoisseur range. Made with Gohyakumangoku rice milled down to just 60% of its original size, creating a delicate and complex sake with a creamy mouthfeel and tropical fruit notes.
Our Tokubetsu Honjozo is a lighter-bodied sake to which the sake master adds a small amount of alcohol prior to the filtering stage. This technique brings out the clean and savoury flavours elicited through the brewing process. Offering a longer and more robust finish, it perfectly complements a multi-course dinner.
Tastin Note - A delicate bouquet and light notes of lemon, lime and straw. After a lively first impression, you will notice this sake’s refreshing, soft citrus flavours with a sweet, well-balanced finish.
Pairing Suggestion - Barbecued meats and vegetables, Lamb stew, Grilled fish and seafood , Cheeses of various strength and flavour (Comté, Cheddar)
