Nigori sake is milk-white, unfiltered (or lightly filtered) sake. Fermented rice solids left in this sake create creamy, mouth-filling clouds complementing notes of pear and lychee.
Sake is usually filtered to remove grain solids left behind after the fermentation process. Nigori sake is filtered using a broader mesh, resulting in the permeating of fine rice particles and a far cloudier drink.
Nigori sake is generally the sweetest of all sake, with a fruity nose and a mild flavor, making a great drink to complement spicy foods or as a dessert wine. Before serving, the bottle is shaken properly to mix the sediment with the sake, to obtain the full range of flavor and its signature look.
