INOUE GOMEI - FUKUOKA
Junmai • Pure Rice Sake
Yamahai • Traditional yeast starter method
Koshu • No charcoal filtration
Biden is an elegant Koshu [aged] sake, made from locally grown ‘Itoshima’ Yamada Nishiki rice, that is predominantly utilised in brewing Daiginjō level sake. This rice strain has produced a koshu with elegance and softness. The brewer has utilised Yeast Strain No #7 to produce a strong ferment with mellow aroma and then the ageing has produced a beautiful medium-bodied sake with caramel tones typical of aged sake but with fantastic savoury and earthy elements created by the Yamahai yeast starter method. The Biden has been aged at room temperature for 15 years and is incredible value for its age! A great accompaniment for a wide range of savoury or earthy foods like Jerusalem artichokes, soba noodles, dishes seasoned with soy or miso, cured and grilled meats, or hard cheeses.
