With the holiday season in full swing, sparkling wine and champagne consumption is on the rise. Fizzy drinks go with the season – bottles are popped open at office Christmas parties, midday festive lunches, or enjoyed by the fire at night. If you are fond of bubbly alcoholic beverages, you may be looking for something a little different this year, to expand your palate and keep the monotony at bay. Sparkling sake is the answer!
Our sparkling sake recommendation is Yoshida Gassan Sparkling Cloud. It is a natural sparkling sake created using secondary fermentation in each bottle. Easy to drink, its fine bubbles provide a refreshing taste that is perfect for making a toast. It gives off a distinct "pop" when the cork is opened, making it a unique and ideal accompaniment to many festive occasions. Also ideal as an aperitif or aperitif with cooked vegetables, cheese and desserts. Serve chilled.
Gassan Sparkling Cloud, was awarded the gold medal in the sparkling sake category of the 'The Fine Sake Awards Japan 2020'. It also won a gold medal in the sparkling sake category of the world's largest wine competition, International Wine Challenge in 2022.
