Description
 
This daiginjo sake is almost transparently light and delicate, with a winsome natural sweetness and innocent grace that are simply irresistable. In 2002, Fair Maiden won a gold medal in the daiginjo B class at the U.S. National Sake Competition. It is delicious sipped as an aperitif or served as an accompaniment to salads and light seafood dishes: it goes perfectly with lobster, scallops and any kind of white fish sashimi. Refrigerate and serve chilled.

Fair Maiden is produced at Uchigasaki Brewing Company. Founded in 1661, it is the oldest sake brewery in Miyagi Prefecture. Kura no Hana is a new rice strain ideal for brewing light yet rounded sakes.

Due to the delicate nature of this product, we highly recommend upgrading to overnight shipping if you live outside of our immediate delivery area (New York City, Long Island, Southeastern NY, CT, DE, MD, Washington DC, RI and Eastern PA); ideally, sake should be outside of refrigeration for as short a time as possible. Please contact customer service at info@drinkupny.com if you have any questions concerning sake shipping.

Very good sake January 29, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This sake has wonderful balance to it.  It's very clean, light and delicate with just a touch of sweetness and citrus.  It was a wonderful accompaniment to the fresh sea scallops over rice dish I prepared that night.  The price point also makes it a very good bargain.  I've had many more expensive sake's that don't compare.
