Product Details

Sake based

We at Kurashu are huge fans of all sorts of citrus sake. They are a great balance of tart and sweet and make a great aperitif. Enjoy chilled, on the rocks, or with a splash of soda water.

This particular citrus sake is made in summer only. Early harvest green mandarins are squeezed into a base of fine sake. The gentle aroma and reserved sweetness are balanced in the mouth with a subtle, refreshing bitterness.

Brewery Story

Wakayama's Fruit

Wakayama's fruit are so famous within Japan that the area is known as the 'Fruit Kingdom'. Fittingly, Umeshu (Japanese plum wine) from Wakayama is the only one fitted with a GI (protected geographical indication) from the Japanese government. But citrus fruit from the area are just as famous and include many varieties that are not available abroad. These fruit sakes are radically different from western 'liqueurs', which are often sickly sweet. Japanese fruit sake are fresh, lively and well balanced. They are superb on the rocks on a warm summer day and delicious with soda as an aperitif.

Summer in a bottle

Great as an aperitif, digestiv and on it's own. It has this nice tang of the green mandarin. Perfect gift, too.
