Yuzu Sake - Heiwa
Japanese junmai sake - 100% pure rice wine
Yuzu, the Japanese citrus fruit so popular recently in Western restaurants, now as a refreshing drink based on sake. Consisting for 50% of pure and sour yuzu juice, this yuzu-sake is extremely refreshing and completely cleans your palate. Drink on a hot sunny afternoon, as an aperitif, to go with a dessert, as a surprising ingredient of a cocktail, or whenever you need a refreshing kick. Serve ice-cold, either straight or on-the-rocks, to have the best balance between sweet and sour.
Perfect for a warm summerday!
Heiwa Shuzō (Peace Brewery) has prewar roots but made a re-start after the war. Like a true Wakayama brewery, it produces both sake and plum sake. Recently the brewery has attracted nation-wide attention because of the new junmaishu line of Kido and the luxurious plum sake and other fruit sake series called Tsuru-ume.
