SAYURI means "a little lily", which reminds us of the delicate image of Japanese culture. In actuality, the word "yuri", or "lily", has the meaning in floral terms of "chastity" and "innocence", and "SAYURI" is also used as a name for Japanese girls and women. We created SAYURI as an embodied gracefulness of Japan. Using only selected rice and rice koji, this is pure Nigori sake brewed up carefully with the natural water of Rokko.

White color, like almond milk. Strong Sake aroma, rice, with strong fruitiness too; some alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite thick and a bit astringent; rice and starch; light fruity side (watermelon and honedew), some sweetness, and high alcohol perception.
Interesting experience.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2013
Bottle. Itís a very milky white sake, with some very fine light grey particles. Thereís alcohol on the nose, hints of rice, as well as a good fruityness. Peaches and other tropical fruits. Thereís a whole lot of fine grain particles in the mouth, with the strange viscosity Iíve had in lots of sakes. Not oily, not full-bodied, not thin. Just canít find the word or words for it. Peaches, cucumber, some green grapes and a touch of rice in the flavor. Umami hints and a good dash of lighlty warming alcohol too. Long finish. A pleasant one, although Iím not sure if I like the particles as coarse as in this one. 130903

Opaque white. Aroma of koji, alcohol, wood. Smooth body. Light apple skin, soft spiciness, light koji. Finishes warmly. Nice balance. Delicious nigori, both approachable and interesting.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours rather translucent water/perry color. Aroma is floral and rice. Smooth, smooth medium body. Flavor is clean without a trace of fusil oil. Call it rice with floral aspects. This may be the most delightful sake I can recall. Iíll recap the rest and frig it for the next time Chinese takeaway enters the house.
