| Mukune, Shadows of Katano, Junmai Ginjo Nigori Premium Japanese 300ml|
unmai Ginjo Nigori. Made by Daimon Shuzo, Osaka Prefecture. Clean, fruity, and mellow nigori sake. Nigori sake is made so that some of the rice lees remain in the bottle after pressing. The Katano area was home to many Osaka brewers in the Edo Era (1603-1867), but today only two brewers survive. This sake takes its name from the Katano-area brewing tradition.
Saké, served chilled like wine, is quickly becoming the perfect accompaniment for contemporary cuisine. This new trend has only taken 6800 years to arrive in the United States and with our emphasis on healthy living it appears to be an excellent match.
One out of every five glasses of wine consumed in the world is saké. Since we seem behind the rest of the world in our consumption and knowledge, we need to explore what we have been missing.
Sake, the drink of the Gods in Japan has long been linked to the ancient Shinto religion. Matsuosama, the main saké-brewing deity has shrines dedicated to him inside Japanese breweries. A Shinto ritual called O-miki is performed by a priest who sips saké from a white porcelain cup at the altar. It is believed that he is taking a bit of the god-force into himself and becoming at one with the gods.
