    STYLENigori Genshu: Roughly filtered saké, a classic, cask strength, antique style beverage with fermenting mash remaining after a rough filtration removes heavier particles.
    TASTING NOTESSmooth and creamy with confectionery aromas, a sweet and milky entry with rich rice flavors, hints of cream, pineapple, coconut and vanilla. This is a bold and hearty saké that is sure to reward the exploring palate.
    PAIRING NOTESSpicy curries & Latin dishes. Ideal with rich chocolate cake, mousse or as a desert unto itself.
    RICEMutsuhomare from Aomori Prefecture.
    MILLINGRice milled to: 75% of original grain.
    SERVING TEMPERATURESlightly chilled to cold.

    Take a big step back in time, before modernization brought the concept of filtration to saké brewers. Step back to a simple time when saké was fresh, unfiltered and undiluted. Nigori means "Cloudy," or "Unfiltered" which comes from the rice sediment that remains in the saké after it passes through a very coarse mesh and often after some of the fermenting mash is added back. Thicker and unrefined, unlike most saké, Nigori is to saké as Hefeweizen is to beer — thick and creamy.
