A Premium Junmai Sake brewed & imported from Nara, Japan - the birthplace of sake. TY KU Sake Silver is crafted from sake rice that is polished so only 70% of the grain remains, a process which removes impurities and refines taste. Recipient of prestigious awards & accolades including: Platinum Medal (SIP), Gold Medal (N.Y. Wine & Spirits), 90pt Rating (Tasting Panel) and the 5 Star Diamond Award (AAHS). The Junmai classification represents the top 15% of all sake in the world.
Fresh & slightly sweet with subtle pear notes, leaving softness on the palate. Enjoy chilled like a fine white wine or in a delicious cocktail. Refrigerate after opening and for best taste, enjoy soon thereafter.
Not just for sushi, TY KU Sake Silver pairs well with smoky, robust flavors, including grilled and barbequed proteins. Visit our Food Pairings page for more suggestions and for signature Chef Ming Tsai food recipes.
Completely Gluten Free and contains no Sulfites or Tannins. Sake has a much lower acidity than wine and is made from only 4 all natural ingredients.
Grade is determined by how much the outside of the rice grain is polished away. The more that it's polished, the higher the quality of the sake.
We encourage you to drink TY KU Sake chilled or in premium cocktails. Visit our Sake Cocktails page for recipes.
