It is generally accepted that red wine and champagne go well with meat dishes.
But are wine, champagne and shochu-based beverages the only ones that actually go well with meat dishes?
‘We're sure that sake can also be made to go with meat dishes and wagyu beef.'
'We want to see more and more sake in steak and barbecue restaurants.'
That was the start of our product development.
Sparkling Japanese Sake
It is then blended with Daidai (Japanese citrus) juice and cherry blossom flavor, and carbonation is added at the optimum ratio to create a refreshing sparkling sake.
Dry, Strong taste
Indeed, the acidity and astringency of wine go well with meat.
But what about Wagyu beef, which is fatty and has a strong 'umami' flavor?
Surely, the cuisine of one's own country should be matched with one's own sake.
For this reason, we have developed a sake that goes well with 'Wagyu'.
Due to its role as a drink with dinner, the base sake is dry and has a robust flavor that is not overpowered by the strong taste of the wagyu beef.
On the Rocks [recommended]
It is of course delicious chilled and drunk as it is, but we recommend it on the rocks. It will refresh the fat in your mouth and leave you wanting another sip. We hope you enjoy the perfect marriage of food and drink that enhances each other.
