What Is HANA Flavored Sake?
Like any sake, HANA flavored sake is a form of Japanese rice wine brewed with high-quality rice and pure water. In Japan, sake brewing is considered a special skill — and its precise process and conditions take time and experience to master.
Here at Takara Sake, we use a unique process that combines new technology with age-old brewing processes to brew our signature junmai sake. First, we polish, wash, soak and steam the rice. Then we combine the portion of rice with a koji microbe. When healthy koji rice is propagated, we create yeast starter and build a main mash for the fermentation. Pure water is used during those entire processes. After a few weeks, the sake is filtered, pressed and pasteurized for smoothness. Then, it is aged for three to six months to achieve the desired balance of flavor.
HANA flavored sake was born after carefully blending our junmai sake with natural fruit flavors, resulting in a sweet, smooth drink that tastes like a dessert.
