Get ready for summer with eel and aged sake
Doyo no Ushi Day in 2022 will be Saturday, July 23rd.
Many people may eat ``eel'' on the day of the ox, as it is good to eat food with ``u'' in it.
In fact, grilled eel and aged sake go very well together . The fragrant sauce of kabayaki and the characteristic flavor of old sake do not overpower each other and can be enjoyed in just the right balance.
The richly flavored eel sauce goes well with dark, aged aged sake .
Dark-ripened aged sake is made by aging brewed sake at room temperature. As it ages, dramatic changes occur in shine, color, aroma, and taste, creating a complex flavor.
This time, we would like to introduce two carefully selected types from among the richly matured brands that we carry at ``Ancient Sake.''
Grilled eel × “2010 Ryuriki” “2003 Yamabuki”
Aged old sake made using 100% of the mysterious sake rice "Shinriki." It has a rich flavor and a sweet aroma reminiscent of ripe figs, which goes perfectly with the kabayaki sauce. Its taste is strong enough to be recognized at global competitions such as IWC.
<Recommended gift set that includes dragon power>
A recommended summer set containing rich Japanese sake and plum wine that goes well with ice cream and other sweets. Recommended for those who are interested in aged sake other than sake.
This set allows you to experience the different colors of a variety of aged sake that shines in amber. Of course, you can also enjoy the differences in taste and aroma depending on the aging method.
An aged sake with a fragrant cacao aroma and exotic aromas of cinnamon and cumin . The aroma opens up better at room temperature than when chilled, allowing you to enjoy the lingering flavor and fullness even more.
<Recommended gift set that includes Yamabuki>
A set that collects brands made in the Tohoku region, which is also a rice-producing region, using the ``kanzukuri'' method, which is brewed during the cold winter months. Contains aged sake carefully made by sake breweries in Akita, Iwate, and Fukushima prefectures.
A set of brands that go well with meat dishes and oily seafood dishes. We deliver aged sake with suppressed acidity and a richly expressive aroma.
It seems that the heat will become even more severe from now on. This summer, let's overcome the harsh heat by drinking ``delicious sake from ancient times'' along with eel.
