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.

D’un blanc opaque, comme du lait écrémé, qui forme des bulles lorsqu’on le verse et qui disparaissent aussitôt. Ça sent l’alcool fermenté, le riz froid avec des vapeurs d’eucalyptus, très faiblement et pas constamment. Le goût est semblable. Quelques pics alcoolisés qui ne sont pas sans rappeler certaines eaux-de-vie en provenance des pays nordiques; de l’alcool "blanc", agrémenté d’une saveur de pastille blanche, d’où son côté sucré et médicinal. Une texture légèrement crémeuse et soyeuse qui fait bien passer le tout, alors que l’alcool est perçu encore longtemps après la gorgée. (656-270513)

My first bottle of sake. Pours milky white with no head. Aroma is rice porridge mulk cream vanilla icecream flirsl and some spicyness. Flavor is velvety lean vanilla milky fruity a bit boozy apples cream. Good creamy fruity and a bit florsl aftertaste. Interesting, I really like this, afraid don’t have any reference to other sakes yet.

(Bottle said to shake well before serving, due to intended sediment). Opaque off white, like a faintly yellow milk. Aroma is of dry rice grain, some sort of sweet berry, and raw plastic. Flavor has a bit of coconut milk and honey tones, with a faint chalkiness, both in texture and in flavor. Mouthfeel is too chalky and thick, like watered down yogurt. Just a weird drink all around.

My bottle of this sake poured a few tiny clear bubbles that quickly disappeared and left behind a milky/cloudy body with some fine floaties in it. The aroma was a nice Nigori mellow mildly musty and soft polished rice. The creamy milky mouth feel was mellow at the start and finished with a stronger vinous alcohol aftertaste. The flavor was dull at first and stayed mellow throughout until the finish where the alcohol comes through. Quaffable and mellow, this Sake is an easy drink and I would recommend it for new Sake drinkers.

Bottle @ onto, bristol. Cloudy white unfiltered sake with citrus nose, light but smooth mouthfeel and creamy rice pudding taste. Touch of alcohol and jasmine in finish.

One of my favourite sakes. Sweet, rice, excellent both cold and warmed. A great sake.

From a pretty neat looking 300 ml bottle. Pours a hazy milk white. Taste is of rice, fruit and a touch of warming alcohol. Has a floral and rice aroma. The body is creamy, a bit coarse and coats the mouth. Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Well worth having again.

Lightly sweet nose with a touch of honey, hints of grapes and dough. The taste is lightly sweet with subtle honeysuckle, peach and pear, light honey.

Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2011
Great sake. Floral aroma, very smooth and tasty like a complex white wine. Dangerously drinkable.

Little Lily is the perfect name to use when describing this delicate Nigori. It is bottled beautifully, tastes among the best, and is gentle on your palate. And like the White Crane it is soft and lifting with a solid organic white color. Sayuri is an excellent Sake!
