TY KU SAKE BLACK
Super Premium, Junmai Ginjo, Japanese Sake. TY KU Sake Black is rapidly becoming the most popular sake in the U.S with its unparalleled quality, taste & style. TY KU Sake Black is specially craft brewed in Nara, Japan, home of the world's first sake brewery dating back to 680 A.D. This super premium Junmai Ginjo sake utilizes 45% milled sake rice. This classification represents the top 6% of all sake in the world. TY KU Sake Black is crafted for true food & wine aficionados.
TY KU Sake Black's refined flavor profile balances peach on the nose with a subtle hint of spice underneath. The depth and body pairs well with lighter Western fare (grilled white meats and cooked fish), yet is dry and delicate enough to complement Asian cuisine. Recipient of the prestigious 5 Star Diamond Award, Gold Medal at the San Francisco Wine Competition and Platinum Medal (Best in Show) at the World Beverage Competition.
SAKE VS. WINE
As opposed to wine, sake is generally 100% free of sulfites, tannins, gluten and has a much lower acidity. Sake may also have up to 400 flavor components while wine typically has no more than 200. As a result, sake pairs well with a wider variety of food. Enjoy premium sake like a white wine, slightly chilled in your favorite white wine glass.
