Ginjo Yuzushu Citrus Sake Akashi Tai 500ml, delicious, uniquely flavoured Sake infused with Japanese Yuzu fruit, intense and very smooth, the perfect partner for Lemon Meringue pie! The Yuzu's flavour is tart, closely resembling that of the grapefruit, with overtones of mandarin orange but in this Sake the fruit's resemblance to lemon comes to the fore. The liquid is extremely intense lemon, citrus flavour with rich texture and body, a touch of sweetness but well balanced and fresh. This is a unique drink, strong in flavour so a 500ml bottle goes a long way. We think it makes the perfect lemon tart of pie dessert wine but may also work with some strong flavoured Sushi.

Akashi-Tai brewery has been brewing since 1886, and they still brew by hand with the expertise learned by several generations of family run business. Since Kimio Yonezawa took over they have put the emphasis on innovation to bring their quality sakes up to date. Despite their modernist approach, they are well renowned for producing true artisan sake, handmade in small batches by their master brewer Kimio Yonezawa (known as a Toji) and his close team of trusted craftsmen. They use traditional methods and only the finest local ingredients, most notably the rice and the water. They've innovated a number of flavoured Sakes (the Plums is one of our best sellers at Christmas for drinking with mince pies), and even Sparkling Sake. Tai refers to the Sea Bream which makes its way into the Osaka Bay, one of the most difficult places for fish to live due to the current. Only the hardiest of fish make it, and this is why they have chosen it as their emblem; for its strength, curiosity and tenacity.
