Tokubetsu Honjozo

特別本醸造酒 The Akashi Sake Brewery

Our Tokubetsu Honjozo is a lighter-bodied sake to which the sake master adds a small amount of alcohol prior to the filtering stage. This technique brings out the clean and savoury flavours elicited through the brewing process. Offering a longer and more robust finish, it perfectly complements a multi-course dinner.

Properties

A delicate bouquet and light notes of lemon, lime and straw. After a lively first impression, you will notice this sake’s refreshing, soft citrus flavours with a sweet, well-balanced finish.

Pairing Suggestions

特別本醸造酒ペアリング
Our signature recipe

Chicken supreme, pumpkin creme and sauce

Ingredients for 2 people

Chicken supreme

2 chicken supremes
1 knob of butter
1 drizzle of olive oil

Pumpkin crème

300 g of pumpkin
1/2 glass of milk
1/2 tablespoon of fresh cream

Sauce

1 chicken carcass
1 onion
1 thyme branch
50 g of butter
1/2 glass of sake
1 drizzle of olive oil

Poultry supreme

Remove the fat and the veins. Cook in olive oil, skin side down for 4 minutes over medium heat. Put weight on top so it is crispy. Add a knob of butter and flip the supreme for 2 minutes and set aside.

Sauce

In a pressure cooker, drizzle olive oil and sauté the chicken carcass. Add minced onion, thyme and slightly colour. Deglaze with sake and add water without fully covering the chicken. Bring to a boil and cook at least for 45 minutes.
Remove the carcass by filtering it with a colander. Reduce the sauce to 3/4 to reach stronger flavours. Set aside.

Pumkin crème

Coarsely chop the pumpkin and put it in a pot, cover with milk and a glass of water. Let it simmer until it is melting. Mix it up with salt and pepper. Then add the cream.

Serve

In a plate, put the supremes, pumpkin cream and verse the sauce on top of the chicken.

How to enjoy

Sake comes best served in a fine wine glass to reveal its intense flavours, with delicious floral notes and the famous Japanese “umami”. Our sakes can also be enjoyed in a traditional Ochoco and Tokkuri sake set.

Perfectly complementing a range of cuisines, it offers a moreish drinkability that can be enjoyed over several courses, or just before a meal to whet your appetite. Whether you prefer it chilled to preserve the full spectrum of flavours, or gently heated on a winter’s evening, each of our sakes has a unique flavour and strength.
