COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gekkeikan Sake (USA) brews its newest premium Sake, Haiku Premium Select, using Japonica variety California rice, specially patented yeast developed in Kyoto by Gekkeikan Japan, and high quality water from the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Haiku’s innovative fermentation process proceeds at low temperatures for extended periods. The result is a delicate, slightly dry sake with a light aroma reminiscent of orchard apples. Haiku can be enjoyed by itself or with fish, poultry and vegetarian dishes. It also compliments a wide variety of ingredients, such as those found in fusion cuisine. Enjoy Haiku chilled or over ice.
