Imayotsukasa Koi Nishikigio 17% 720ml
In “Koi NISHIKIGOI”, the grade and rice is kept a secret, this is to allow one’s sense of smell and taste to be surprised, appreciating its flavour and aroma without sight and knowledge of it. A traditional and well-layered sake, this Junmai Daiginjo hails from the Niigata prefecture, birthplace of this sake’s namesake, the Koi. Nishikigoi Sake is the product of Imayo Tsukasa Sake Brewery and is a traditional sake that boasts spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, buffered by earthy hints of Parisian mushroom and garlic, giving it a soft, buttery feel while still providing a kick at the end.
The beauty within is equally matched by the beauty without as the bottle that houses Nishikigoi Sake is artfully crafted by Yamaharu Glass Co. The distinctive red-on-white pattern that mimics the Kohaku variety of Koi has been the recipient of numerous design awards, making each unique bottle a collector’s item.
