COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sho Chiku Bai means "Pine Bamboo Plum". Ginjo is a special reserve connoisseur class of sake. Most sakes are brewed with rice that has been milled 30%. For our Ginjo we use rice that is polished over 50%. Additionally, we use a special strain of yeast that allows for fermentation at a cooler temperature. The result of the slower, longer process is a silky-smooth, rich and fruity flavor. Known as "The Frosty Bottle", one of the top selling Ginjyo Sake in the U.S.. Kosher Certified.

KoRoBeNiKi (127) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Common Sake found in the USA. From most likely a bottle at a Sake restaurant I love in NYC> Clear as water as per usual. Aroma of rice, almond, light alcohol, light fruit. A little bit of alcohol at the end with some smooth almond and fruit. Nice, but a bit boring compared to some Sakes. Commonly found though.
