A great pair of sakes for the Chinese New Year festivities thanks to how versatile they are. Both Koshi No Kanbai Sai Junmai Ginjyo Sake and Koshi No Kanbai Ginjyo Bessen Sake are two of Koshi No Kanbai's signature labels and this 1800ml bundle will allow you to make the best of both worlds at a great value.  


Name: Koshi No Kanbai Sai Junmai Ginjyo Sake (1.8 LTR)
Japanese Name: 越乃寒梅 灑 純米吟醸酒

The Koshi No Kanbai Sai Junmai Ginjyo Sake is the result of the brewery’s successful quest to achieve the perfect Junmai Ginjyo. With its brewing aesthetic inspired by the dignity and grace of a plum tree, this elegant drink embodies an unassuming fullness, a soft aroma, smooth finish, and a crisp aftertaste.

Sai is made from Gohyakumangoku and Yamadanishiki rice with a polishing ratio of 55%. The refined, crisp taste of this ginjyo sake, another heir to the Koshi no Kanbai heritage, comes from the Ishimoto Sake Brewery’s mastery of using special sake-brewing rice and low-temperature ageing techniques.

To make Sai as palatable as possible for first-time sake drinkers, we used a junmai blend that accentuates the umami of the rice but made sure that the brew would still deliver a light, understated taste. Although delicious at any temperature, we recommend drinking it at around 10°C, but can also be enjoyed hot or cold. Recommended pairing with fish cuisines.

Name: Koshi No Kanbai Ginjyo Bessen Sake (1.8 LTR)
Japanese Name: 越乃寒梅 別撰 吟醸

Sommelier's Pick - This sake is known for its pleasant, refreshing taste and is made from speciality sake-brewing rice and a yeast variety that produces light-bodied, fragrant sake. When served at room temperature or chilled it has a refreshing taste that is the hallmark of the tanrei karakuchi style, and features a more expansive flavour when warmed. Recommended pairing with okonomiyaki, chirashi don, oyster.
