Tasting Notes: A remarkable sake from Katsuyama brewery in Akita prefecture. Akatsuki Junmai Daiginjo is a “centrifuge” sake, meaning the mash is separated from the sake using an expensive, space age centrifuge machine. This sake is amazingly complex and comes with many tantalizing opportunities for pairing with both western and eastern cuisines.
