November 7th Is Nabe (Hot Pot) and Warmed Sake Day

What Is Nabe and Warmed Sake Day?


Nabe (Hot Pot) and Warmed Sake Day was established by the 'Nihonshu ga Umai! Promotion Committee, formed by leading Japanese sake brewing companies, including Gekkeikan, Kizakura, etc. The date falls on Ritto (7 November), which is a solar term signifying the beginning of winter, a season prefect for enjoying this combination. Nabe is a classic winter food in Japan, and the combination of nabe and warmed sake is at the heart of family gatherings. 

火锅和温热清酒节是由“清酒好喝!” 推广委员会设立的,其会员包含月桂冠、紀伊桜等清酒酿造公司。日期定于立冬(11月7日),这是一个节气,标志着冬天的开始,是享受这一搭配的最佳季节。火锅是日本经典的冬季食物,火锅和e和温热的清酒结合在一起是家庭聚会的核心哦。

Why Nabe and Warmed Sake?


Sake contains particularly high levels of amino acids compared to other alcoholic beverages, due to the complex fermentation process it undergoes. Nabe, on the other hand, contains high levels of the flavour components glutamic acid, inosinic acid and guanylic acid, not only in the ingredients, but also in the kelp and dried bonito flakes used for the broth. Nabe dishes, in which various types of ingredients are simmered in dashi broth, are said to be a treasure trove of umami. Warming up sake further increases its aroma and umami, while the taste becomes more mellow so it will go well with any kind of nabe dish.


Recommended Sake


For a special hot pot night with your family or friends, we recommend Kizakura Kyo no Tokuri Junmai Gold. This sake contains gold flakes, which symbolizes wealth. It is perfect for special occasions and greetings. The sake features a dry taste and light body. Since it is Junmai sake, it is also great for warming up!

如果你想和你的家人或朋友一起度过一个特别的火锅之夜,我们推荐你去kiizakura Kyo no Tokuri Junmai Gold。这种清酒含有金片,象征着财富。特别适合问候场合。清酒的特点是口感干爽,酒体清淡。因为是纯米清酒,所以也很适合做暖身运动!
