The Yuzu Sake is Ippin’s signature “limoncello” sake. It uses two types of premium yuzu, giving it a wonderfully zesty characteristic. It’s sweet and fragrant, with an ABV of 8%. It’s refreshing to drink, with a brilliant citrus flavor that balances beautifully with its sake dimensions.
Serve your Ippin Yuzu Sake chilled or on the rocks, and pair with grilled food like teppanyaki. It also works well with sushi and Japanese omelets.
Established in the Ibaraki prefecture of Japan in 1790 by Seizaburo Yoshikubo, it began as the Awanoya Brewery. The building burned down in 1945 during the war, but was rebuilt soon after. Renamed Yoshikubo Brewery Co., Ltd. In 1952, it continued to brew high quality sake with the same traditional methods.
It is still owned and managed by the Yoshikubo family, and is currently on its 12th generation. But the traditions remain—they use the clear waters from their hometown of Mito, with methods passed down through so many years.
Store unopened sake upright in a dark place, at a cool room temperature, ideally at about 12 to 15°C. If you wish to drink your sake chilled, place it in the refrigerator the night before consumption. Opened bottles should always be kept refrigerated. If you later wish to drink your sake at room temperature, place the portion you want into a small pouring vessel and leave that out on the counter at least 3 hours before consumption. Generally, sake should be consumed within one year of the bottling date, but when properly stored, it can survive up to 2 years. An open bottle of sake must be consumed within 2 to 3 weeks.
