Tasting Notes

Named after a famous samurai of the region nicknamed Suigei because he drank like a whale, this sake has a strong flavor and a crisp, refreshing finish. Its high rice-polishing ratio compares favorably with other Junmai sakes, and this sake is easily paired with a range of dishes.

Staff Pick Notes

Suigei (Drunken Whale) is an extremely versatile sake that shows off its nuances and complexities at many temperatures and in different contexts. Decidedly on the earthy and savory side of the great SMV (Sake Meter Value) divide, this Tokubetsu Junmai can be enjoyed chilled, room temperature, and warmed. Polished down to 55%, and made from Akitsuho rice, this is a clean and linear tipple. The kura is in Kochi, on the southern coast of Shikoku, which has a water supply perfect for sake production. The result is a crisp, smooth sake that tastes of earth and highlights rice flavors. Bright acidity makes this sake pop with seafood and minimal vegetable dishes. A sake to quench even the maniacal thirst of Captain Ahab.
