Dassai 45 Junmai Daiginjo Sake - A Symphony of Craftsmanship and Purity!

Sake, often referred to as 'rice wine' is an age-old Japanese beverage that's steeped in tradition and craftsmanship. Among the various categories of sake, Junmai Daiginjo stands as a true pinnacle of the brewer's art. Dassai 45 Junmai Daiginjo Sake is a jewel that exemplifies purity, precision and elegance.

Dassai 45, created by the renowned Asahi Shuzo brewery, is a Junmai Daiginjo Sake that embodies the spirit of the craft. Its name, 'Dassai' is derived from the Japanese phrase 'Datsu-sara', which means to break free from tradition. Indeed, Dassai 45 is a celebration of innovation within the framework of time-honoured brewing techniques.

This exceptional sake is characterised by several key attributes:

1. The Rice: Dassai 45 is crafted using only the finest Yamada Nishiki rice, revered as the 'King of Sake Rice'. This choice rice variety is polished down to a remarkable 45% of its original size, an exacting process that removes impurities and allows the purest essence of the grain to shine.

2. Polishing Perfection: The rice-polishing process is crucial in the production of Junmai Daiginjo Sake. Dassai 45's rice is polished to such a degree that only 45% of the original grain remains. This painstaking process results in a sake that is incredibly smooth and fragrant.

3. The Brewing Process: The brewing of Dassai 45 adheres to the highest standards. It is carefully fermented at low temperatures, allowing the delicate aromas and flavours to fully develop. This slow fermentation process ensures a crisp, clean taste that is the hallmark of premium Junmai Daiginjo Sake.

4. Flavour Profile: Dassai 45 presents a delicate and refined profile. It has a floral, fruity nose with hints of green apple and melon and a gentle, slightly sweet taste with a touch of umami. The finish is exceptionally smooth and clean, making it a superb choice for those new to Japanese sake as well as aficionados.

5. Versatile Enjoyment: Dassai 45 is a versatile sake that can be enjoyed chilled or at room temperature. Whether paired with sushi, sashimi or other Japanese delicacies, it offers a superb complement to a wide range of cuisines.

In every bottle of Dassai 45, you can taste the dedication and passion of the artisans at Asahi Shuzo. With an alcohol content of 16%, this 300ml bottle offers enough to savour its exquisite flavours on various occasions. It's a testament to the relentless pursuit of perfection in sake brewing and a testament to the enduring appeal of this iconic Japanese beverage.
