At Ooki Daikichi, they take pride in the making of sake with all traditional, natural ingredients, no additives or preservatives, and only sustainably farmed rice. These sake are made in a very traditional yamahai style, using only the natural yeast that has accumulated over many years. The resulting sake yields high levels of amino acids and the flavors are packed with umami. Additionally this brewer ages the sake individually until it has reached a perfect balance. The sake enhances the scent and taste of the food, as well as creating a softer mouth feel.
First impression of this complex sake is the rich and full aromas of hazelnut, burnt caramel and dried fruit. It has a developed round mouth feel with a finish full of orange zest and clean acidity to give the sake a wonderful balance.
