KATSUYAMA DEN JUNMAI DAIGINJO
Brewery: KATSUYAMA SHUZO
Created using highly polished Yamada Nishiki Koji rice which provides a fruity aroma and distinct rich flavours, Katsuyama Den is brewed in the Miyagi Prefecture of Japan. This saké offers a crisp and clean umami flavour which makes it ideal for pairing with tuna or salmon sashimi. It also goes well with meats prepared in either Japanese or Western styles. ‘Den’ comes from the word for “Tradition” and refers to the traditional way this saké is brewed, which is a fitting title, considering that this Junmai daiginjo is Katsuyama Brewery's finest example of traditional saké brewing. The name Den also means "to convey" thoughts and feelings.
