Tatsuriki Daiginjo Blue Dragon

A Shogunate Classic

This clas­sic daig­in­jo sake rep­re­sents the height and ele­gance of Japan­ese brew­ing tra­di­tions. Tat­suri­ki works with only the high­est-qual­i­ty rice pro­duc­ers in the area to craft this smooth, fla­vor-deep brew.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Made with pre¬≠mi¬≠um, grow¬≠er-chal¬≠leng¬≠ing organ¬≠ic Yama¬≠da Nishi¬≠ki rice from the Hyo¬≠go pre¬≠fec¬≠ture, this daig¬≠in¬≠jo sake is made in absolute¬≠ly per¬≠fect con¬≠di¬≠tions. The rice used to pro¬≠duce the sake is allowed to dry nat¬≠u¬≠ral¬≠ly for the high¬≠est-qual¬≠i¬≠ty brew¬≠ing. This sake is semi-dry, boast¬≠ing a very light nose of hon¬≠ey¬≠suck¬≠le, mel¬≠on musk, and anise, with a light to medi¬≠um body, vel¬≠vety feel, and beau¬≠ti¬≠ful depth of fla¬≠vor with a clean-cut finish.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

A tru¬≠ly excel¬≠lent sake deserves the del¬≠i¬≠cate, light fla¬≠vors of a sashi¬≠mi plat¬≠ter, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly one heavy on white fish. It goes equal¬≠ly well with a well-made beef carpac¬≠cio. Tofu or boiled greens, both in a light soy sauce, served with broiled fish‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthis is the kind of sim¬≠ple but deli¬≠cious fare that goes with this sake. Veg¬≠etable dish¬≠es from avo¬≠ca¬≠do-filled sal¬≠ads to chop suey to tem¬≠pu¬≠ra also pair well with it. And for dessert, fresh fruit always goes with its clear, deep taste.

THE DEL­I­CATE BAL­ANCE OF QUAL­I­TY AND TEMPERATURE

Japan¬≠ese sakes are tai¬≠lored to the dif¬≠fer¬≠ent sea¬≠sons of the year as well as to the foods they are often paired with. Jun¬≠mai sakes, pure rice cre¬≠ations with¬≠out addi¬≠tives, have a rich pure¬≠ness of taste that makes them par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠ly good served warm or at room tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture. Hon¬≠jo¬≠zo sakes con¬≠tain a tiny amount of dis¬≠tilled brewer‚Äôs alco¬≠hol, which smooths out their fla¬≠vor and aro¬≠ma. Light and easy to drink, they can be enjoyed warmed or chilled. Gin¬≠jo sakes are light and fruity, and not often fra¬≠grant. The rule, though not a hard and fast one, is that they should be served chilled. The pre¬≠mi¬≠um daig¬≠in¬≠jo sake is the pin¬≠na¬≠cle of the brewer‚Äôs art and is thus best served chilled to bring out its com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty of fla¬≠vor and aroma.

Storage Instructions

Store unopened daig¬≠in¬≠jo sake upright in the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor below 4¬įC. If you wish to drink your sake chilled, place it in the refrig¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tor the night before con¬≠sump¬≠tion. Opened bot¬≠tles should always be kept refrig¬≠er¬≠at¬≠ed. If you lat¬≠er wish to drink your sake at room tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture, place the por¬≠tion you want into a small pour¬≠ing ves¬≠sel and leave that out on the counter at least 3 hours before con¬≠sump¬≠tion. Gen¬≠er¬≠al¬≠ly, sake should be con¬≠sumed with¬≠in one year of the bot¬≠tling date, but when prop¬≠er¬≠ly stored, it can sur¬≠vive up to 2 years. An open bot¬≠tle of sake must be con¬≠sumed with¬≠in 2 to 3 weeks.
