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.

How to enjoy_Tokubetsu Honjozo

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.
