This is New Zealand's first nigori-zake, handcrafted in Queenstown. The distinctive milky colour is caused by residual rice particles left unfiltered in the sake. Nigori-zake is an easily recognisable drink, and is popular as a great accompaniment to sweet and spicy dishes.
Crafted by lightly filtering the fermented moromi (mash) to leave behind just enough lees in the sake to maintain its original white colour, body and texture. Produced in small batches, our Nigori is fresh yet silky smooth, and goes particularly well with spicier and richer dishes.
Brewed folling time-honoured traditional Japanese methods, this handcrafted Zenkuro nigori-zake is best enjoyed chilled.
