Tasting Notes

This bright yellow, sweet yuzu sake is bursting with zesty citrus fruit. It has an intense mix of lemon, tangerine and lime aromas with a fragrant lift and a balanced sweetness.

Producer details

The family-owned Tosa brewery has been making Sake since 1877. The brewery is currently run by sixth generation Toji (head sake brewer), Muneki Matusmoto, who still uses the original site 140 years later. The name of their range 'Keigetsu', is a Japanese term that describes the beautiful evening scene created when the moon hangs over the Katsurahama shore.

In the vineyard

The Kochi prefecture produces around half of Japan's yuzu because it is prized for its water and cool climate. The yuzu used to make this sake is grown organically by Mr Matusmoto's relatives.

In the winery

The base sake is made from Akitsuho rice with the high polish ratio of a junmai daiginjo before blending with yuzu juice. Junmai daiginjo is the highest tier of unfortified sake and accounts for less that 3% of sakes produced.

Food Recommendations

At 8% ABV, this mouth-puckering yet sweet sake is suitable as a pre-dinner or mid-dinner palate cleanser, likewise in cocktails or on its own paired with desserts or fresh fruit. The unique 'super lemon' flavour of yuzu makes it fun to experiment with different flavour combinations.
