The Japanese Sake market has long been on the rise, and for the past few years has spared no expense in promoting the sake culture to the world. Likewise, city'super has spent tremendous efforts every year to apprehend the stories behind different sakes through visiting local breweries in Japan, ultimately bringing home a variety of exceptional and evolutionary sakes.

From 5th to 18th March 2018, city'super presents the "Blissful Sake Moments" Japanese Sake Fair – in addition to more than 140 sakes from 19 distinct Japanese breweries, the fast-growing AWA Sparkling sakes, which boast high quality and easy to drink characteristics, have also been introduced to the local sake market.

Sake with a Twist: Sparkling Sake

Awasake, or sparkling sake, is all the hype lately. "Awa" means bubbles, and the bubbles from awasake are formed naturally during fermentation. Made from rice, koji and water, awasake are all produced to very strict standards to ensure the best of quality.

Here are a few of our favourite awasakes:
Nanbubijin Awa Sparkling Sake: smooth, fragrant and fruity
Hakkaisan Awa Sparkling Sake: tart, refreshing and a great pre-meal drink
Tenzan Sparkling Sake: very refreshing with delicate bubbles
Dewatsuru Ashitae Sparkling Junmai: a complex, layered awasake great for enjoying with food

Sake Appreciation 101: Tasting Temperatures

Apart from the sake's distinct characteristics, how it is served, in particular the temperature at which it is served, would also affect our tasting experience.  

Serve warm... if you prefer a smoother, creamier texture with a longer finish 
Recommendation: Daina Junmai Ginjo

Serve at room temperature… to experience the elegant, complex rice flavour at its fullest
Recommendation: Kuroushi Kanzan Tobin Junmai Daiginjo, Hakkaisan Yukimuro 3-year-aged Junmai Ginjo

Serve cold... to bring out the sake's character, especially dominant notes of fruits and flowers 
Recommendation: Tenju Chokaisan Junmai Daiginjo Shizukudori, Eikun Suiten Ippeki Junmai Daiginjo

Bright Young Things: Namazake

Say hello to spring with a glass of namazake!

While most sakes are pasteurised twice, namazake is unpasteurised, giving it a younger character with sharper edges, lively aroma and an unmistakable freshness. Be sure to keep namazake refrigerated!

If this is your first time buying namazake, we're here to help.
For a fruity taste:
• Dassai Kanzukuri Hayabune 48 Junmai Daiginjo Nama
• Fukucho Sen Yamada Nishiki Junmai Ginjo Nama

An Exciting Pairing: Ham & Cheese with Sake

Ham and cheese enjoyed with Japanese sake may sound like an unlikely pairing, but trust us, this is a winning combination you'd want to try!

Blue Cheese + Aged Sake = Perfect Match
Kirin Aged Honjozo Koshu is a mix of a seven-year-old and a 16-year-old koshu, or aged sake, giving the rice wine an irresistible aroma. Serve warm and pair with blue cheese for a mouthful of umami.

Iberico Bellota Ham + Organic Ginjo Sake = Incredible Texture
Chikurin Taoyaka Organic Junmai Daiginjo is crafted using Yamada Nishiki rice, giving it a subtle fruitiness and unique tartness; can be enjoyed on its own or paired with food, such as the hand-sliced 48 months Iberico Bellota Ham, for an added creaminess.

Naturally Sweet Sake: Hakkaisan Amazake

Amazake is a traditional Japanese sweet rice drink where the enzymes released from koji convert rice starch into sugar. The drink is non-alcoholic, and no sugar is added - no wonder it’s such a hit in Japan!

You can find a range of amazake at city'super, including Hakkaisan Premium Amazake and those fermented with plant-based lactic acid - the latter with a concentration of over 10 billion active lactic acid bacteria which lends a refreshing taste with a light acidity. Best served chill and can be enjoyed daily!
