DASSAI BLUE

Only Junmai Daiginjo

Our sake is Junmai Daiginjo, a premium grade sake that is made with rice polished down to at least 50% of its original size and no additional alcohol or additives are used in the brewing process. Our sake has four ingredients - high-quality Yamada Nishiki rice, local water, koji mold, and carefully selected yeast.

The rice "Yamada Nishiki"

As noted, our sake has four ingredients - Yamada Nishiki rice, water, koji mold, and yeast. Dassai Blue is produced with only 100% Yamada Nishiki rice. We import rice from our valued farmers in Japan. We have also spent three years cultivating Yamada Nishiki in the U.S. and have worked with Isbell Farms in Arkansas. We use local New York water. Both our Koji mold and yeast are carefully selected from Japan.
