Kikusui / Perfect Snow Unfiltered Sake / 180mL
A mouthful of Japan’s #1 selling Nigori “Perfect Snow” Sake leaves a perfectly excellent impression. "Impact" is the main idea, coming from a flowery, full body, a crisp and dynamic sweetness, and the delectable aftertaste of steamed rice from the coarsely filtered rice mash particles - not to mention the amazing 21%ABV!
With 130 years of history on their shoulders, the Kikusui Sake Company of Niigata prefecture built themselves up from the bottom. The name "Kikusui" is a reference to a Noh theatre play, wherein the dew (Sui) from the petals of chrysanthemums (Kiku) grant eternal life.
Kikusui Perfect Snow is an unfiltered "Nigori" type of sake, which is very sensitive to light. The 180mL can has been specially designed to block out the light. Also the sake is filled all the way to the top to avoid oxidation and ensure freshness.
