FUKUCHO SEASIDE JUNMAI SAKE
Fukuchō Seaside Junmai Sake is a Japanese rice wine produced by the Imada Shuzo brewery, which is located in Hiroshima prefecture, Japan. Imada Shuzo has a long history of sake brewing dating back to the early 19th century and is known for their dedication to traditional brewing methods and their commitment to quality.
Fukuchō Seaside Junmai Sake is made using local Hiroshima-grown Hattan Nishiki rice, which is carefully polished to remove the outer layers, leaving only the starchy core. This rice varietal is known for its unique flavor profile and contributes to the distinct characteristics of this sake.
Seaside Junmai Sake is characterized by its clean, crisp, and refreshing taste, making it a perfect accompaniment to seafood dishes, as its name suggests. The sake has a light-to-medium body, with a well-balanced mix of sweetness, acidity, and umami. Aromas of green apple, melon, and a subtle hint of sea breeze can be detected, reflecting its coastal origin. The finish is smooth and lingering, inviting you to take another sip.
Fukuchō Seaside Junmai Sake is typically served chilled to enhance its fresh flavors and is enjoyed as an aperitif, with a meal, or as a palate cleanser between courses. It pairs well with a variety of dishes, from sushi and sashimi to tempura and grilled fish, making it a versatile option for those looking to explore the world of sake.
