New sake at Shiro’s

Return to all

– May 1, 2021 –

As summer approaches, we have added a new cold sake, Hiya, to our small bottle selection. Mizubasho Ginjo is from Nagai Brewery in Gunma Prefecture, about 70 miles north of Tokyo. Though Gunma is close to Tokyo, the area called Kawaba-mura, where the brewery is located, is full of nature with excellent pure water from the deep mountain and land of Oze. Using Yamadanishiki rice gives Mizubasho a crisp touch and elegant aftertaste, pairing well with fish, especially fatty kinds. Pouring it into a wine glass brings out more of a citrus aroma, so please do not hesitate to ask for wine glasses.
