COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NIGORI is the way sake first appeared when it was brewed for the Imperial Court in Kyoto as well as for most of its 2,000 year history. It is coarsely-filtered and the sweetest of all our types of sake. It is especially delicious with very spicy foods. The bottle should be shaken each time before pouring due to the high rice content that settles in the bottom of the bottle.

Bottle split with my wife. Pours a hazed milky color, cloudy. Soft sweet banana and rice, melon and a bit of berries. Medium bodied, soft fruity melon, a bit of sweetness. Sweet rice into the finish, a touch of warming alcohol over big fruity melon notes. Lingering alcohol.
