Sake, the Elixir of Life

Sake Is the Best of All Medicines

清酒是最好的良药

The Japanese have a saying, "Sake wa hyaku yaku no chou," which translates to "Sake is the best of all medicines." In Italy, a similar sentiment is echoed in the proverb "good wine makes good blood." Far from advocating overindulgence, these proverbs emphasize the deep connection between these beverages and the cultural tapestry of Japan and Italy. Sake, in particular, is not just a drink; it's a reflection of Japanese identity, history, and the land itself—a taste that transcends the senses.

日本人有句谚语:“清酒是最好的药。”在意大利,“好酒酿好血”这句谚语也表达了类似的观点。这些谚语并不是提倡过度放纵,而是强调了这些饮料与日本和意大利文化之间的深厚联系。尤其是清酒,它不仅仅是一种饮料;它反映了日本的身份、历史和这片土地——一种超越感官的味道。

The origins of this profound proverb extend back to the Book of the Later Han, an ancient Chinese historical work from the 5th century. Intriguingly, it finds a counterpart in the saying "sake wa hyaku doku no chou," a notion that sake can be the worst poison, originating from Kenkou Yoshida's Essays in Idleness in the 14th century. This duality encapsulates the Japanese ethos of moderation, urging an appreciation that even life's most exquisite pleasures should be embraced in balance.

这句深奥的谚语的起源可以追溯到公元5世纪的中国古代历史著作《后汉书》。有趣的是,它在“清酒是最坏的毒药”这句话中找到了对应的说法,这句话起源于14世纪吉田贤口的《徒然草》。这种两重性概括了日本人的中庸精神,敦促人们认识到,即使是生活中最精致的乐趣也应该在保持平衡。

Sake Reflecting Japanese Philosophy

清酒提现了日本哲学

Enter Kinsen, an acclaimed sake brand that carries the weight of tradition and craftsmanship on its shoulders. Aihara Shuzo, the current brewer of Kinsen and also the creator of the renowned Ugonotsuki brand, inherited the name from the now-closed Horimoto Shuzo in Hiroshima Prefecture. When Horimoto Shuzo ceased operations, Aihara Shuzo sought the expertise of Atsushi Horimoto, a skilled toji (master brewer), seamlessly incorporating the brand into their distinguished lineup.

金泉是一个广受赞誉的清酒品牌,它肩负着传统和现代工艺的重担。现为金泉清酒的酿造商相原酒造,也是雨后之月品牌的拥有者,是从广岛县堀本酒造继承过来的。当堀本酒造停止运营后,爱原酒造聘请了熟练的酿酒大师堀本诚司,将这个品牌无缝对接融入到他们杰出的产品线中。

At the forefront of Kinsen's offerings stands the Kinsen Sake Wa Hyaku Yaku no Chou, a sake that not only embraces this philosophy but proudly carries its essence in the name. Exhibiting a rich ginjo aroma, it offers a sharp, clear taste that complements various dishes, from bonito tataki to Chinese delicacies like haposai and spring rolls. The journey of each sip begins with a soft, dry, and slightly grainy start, evolving into a lighter finish tinged with hints of bitterness and sweetness. Despite its complexity, Kinsen maintains a lasting thickness that lingers well into the finish—a remarkable interplay of flavors.

在金泉产品的最前沿,矗立着金泉清酒名言:清酒是最好的良药,这款清酒不仅拥抱了这一理念,而且自豪地将其精髓体现在名字中。它散发出浓郁的吟酿香气,口感清新,适合搭配各种菜肴,从鲣鱼烧到猪肉春卷等中国美食都适合。每一口都以柔和、干爽、略带颗粒感的口感开始,并逐渐演变成略带苦味和甜味的清淡收尾。尽管它很复杂,但金泉保持了持久的醇厚,并在回味中保持了良好的效果——这是一种非凡的风味相互作用。

So, take a moment to savor the artistry in every bottle of Kinsen. It's not just a drink; it's a celebration of culture, a testament to craftsmanship, and a reminder that in the delicate dance of flavors, balance is key. Cheers to the elixir of life!

所以,请您花点时间来品味每一瓶金泉的艺术气息吧。它不仅仅是一种饮料;这是对文化的庆祝,对工艺的证明,并提醒人们在微妙的口味之舞中,平衡才是关键。让我们为生命的灵丹妙药干杯吧!
