Hello Sake Lovers~
So for our mother's special I showcase a new category Sparkling Sake. Our new selection from Ozeki Corporation .
Some education about Sparkling sake, compared to the common of sake this category is made to be sweet. It is like a Japanese Champagne , the bubbles are like a tingly sensation on the palate like champagne or sparkling wine does.
So I showcase the following:
Hana-Awaka Sparkling- The aroma creates a join from the start to finish , ripe like banana with vanilla cream notes. On the palate was elegantly sweet and smooth and doesn't linger.
Hana-Fuga Peach Sparkling- the aroma is of a fresh peach as the sake it is a peach sparkling, flavour is sweetness of a peach which doesn't feel like drinking sake.
Hana-Fuga Yuzu Sparkling- the aroma is of freshly squeeze lemon as the sake suggest it is yuzu sparkling, flavour is of sour and sweet, like a yummy sparkling lemonade.
From the turn out we had mix there wasn't stand out flavour, each customer had a favourite for everyone one them.
If they didn't like flavoured sake it was because it didn't give them the nihonshu feel , then people would choose Hana-awaka(original sparkling) which most customer could get a different flavours and aromas which made it interesting.
The customers who didn't like the taste of nihonshu preferred the flavour type of sake .
Peach sparkling it didn't suit the customers who preferred dry and smooth so it was it was favourite for customers who enjoy the fruity sweetness .
Yuzu sparkling was a balance between sour and sweet was a favourite for those customers who didn't like overpowering sweetness . Which felt like refreshing lemonade.
