Dassai sake is created using a careful combination of tradition and cutting-edge technology. The brewery behind the Dassai Brand, Asahi Shuzo, is a medley of ancient tools and innovative equipment. In short, Dassai sake is all about quality, and not quantity, both in how it’s brewed, as well as in how we hope you enjoy it.
It is made with top quality rice, easily the best rice for sake brewing, Yamada Nishiki. The outer portion is milled away, grinding away the outer half or more of each grain before brewing. Why this extravagance? Because this takes advantage of just what is so special about Yamada Nishiki.
At Asahi Shuzo, only premium Junmai Daiginjo sake is brewed. There are but a few breweries in all of Japan that focus all effort on making only top-grade sake. This commitment defines every aspect of the brewery’s existence.
We are introducing two new Dassai Junmai Daiginjo products – Dassai 39 and Dassai 23!
Dassai 39 Junmai Daigino 300ml, 720ml
Dassai 39 Junmai Daiginjo is light and balanced with soft fruity flavors and a mild acidity. Dassai 39 is for when you want something smooth and drinkable that is not too precocious. The “39” in its name means the rice was milled down to 39% of its original size. Enjoy the flowery and expertly balanced Dassai 39 Junmai Daiginjo’s pleasant and addictive notes of ripe pineapples, mangoes, apples and pears.
Dassai 23 Junmai Daiginjo 300ml
This Junmai Daiginjo was born from a single challenge – polishing Yamada Nishiki to the limit of limits – 23% remaining of the original rice grain. The nose presents an irresistibly elegant flowery bouquet with a soft, delicate, honey-like sweetness, and the flavor blooms exquisitely in your mouth. The long finish is a gentle waterfall of flavor that hits the center of your palate and dissipates into bliss-like mists, begging for another sip.
