KIREI KARAKUCHI 80
Dry junmai sake - 100% pure rice wine
The Japanese word ‘kara’ means dry and the sake name ‘karakuchi’ means this sake is an extra dry style. The '80' represents the rice polishing rate, with 80% of the grain remaining. This low polishing leaves great flavours from the fats, proteins and amino acids in the rice and creates a richer palate weight.
This allround sake can be enjoyed at all temperatures. Unpasteurized, undiluted and unfiltered. Drink cold, at room temperature, or warmed up.
This all-round sake combines easily with a variety of diches.

The Ōta family is the proud owner of a beautiful old brewery on the old trade route from Tokyo to Kyoto, a second brewery in the brewing centre of Nada, and a winery also located in Shiga Prefecture.
