– April 1, 2021 –
As temperatures gets warmer, colder sake becomes more and more favored. Springtime brings cherry blossoms, and “Dewazakura” means cherry of Dewa (ancient name of Yamagata prefecture), which brings us to our April sake feature!
Dewazakura Ichiro is Junmai Daiginjo and won the champion sake award in International Wine Challenge in 2008. Its taste is fruity yet smooth and crispy, so it pairs well with many different types of fish, whether fatty or lean. Fruity sake is suitable if you are new to sake, but it is rather rare for fruity sake to go along well with sushi or sashimi. This makes Dewazakura Ichiro one of a kind.
