Inviting aromas of Asian pear, citrus, celery and jasmine phases to stone-fruits and rice flour on the palate, with mouth-watering and lengthy acidity.
Den Blanc is a new expression of sake made using white koji to create a pleasant citrus-like sourness together with gentle umami flavors.
White koji is commonly used for shochu making and naturally produces a higher amount of citric acid.
Due to this natural high acid production, the shubo (yeast starter) is made without adding any lactic acid.
Just like our original flagship Den, we use Calhikari rice grown by Rue & Forsman Ranch.
Founded in 2017 by Yoshihiro Sako, Den Sake Brewery is the first sake brewery in Oakland, California. Sako brews small-batch sake using traditional Japanese brewing methods and proprietary techniques adapted for the California climate.
Den Sake is a pure rice sake made from single origin Cal-Hikari rice from Rue & Forsman ranch in the Sacramento Valley.
We think you will find that Den Sake is a perfect compliment for local and Asian cuisine.
