Den Sake Brewery is the first sake brewery in Oakland, California, founded in 2017 and making handcrafted, small-batch sake from Cal-Hikari rice grown in the Sacramento Valley.
The Red Label is brewed with Yamada Nishiki rice, dubbed in Japan as the “King of Sake Rice” and known for creating sake that is round and supple. The rice is grown in California by the LaGrande family, and the soft water comes from the Mokelumne River at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. The rice is polished to 60%, which technically makes it a junmai ginjo.
Inviting with aromas of orange blossom, young plum, blanched almond and fresh-cut grass with a subtle note of cream, expansive and supple on palate. Minerality and bell-pepper bitterness balancing the fruits, with an uplifting and cleansing dry finish.
