From the esteemed 135 year old Nagai Sake Inc comes the refreshing Mizubasho Artist Series, an exciting trio of sake, each one unique, contemporary and elegant in its own way. Made especially with the modern woman in mind, they are an answer to the growing appetite of discerning female drinkers. The exquisite collection consists of three sakes, a sparkling sake (360ml), a still sake (720ml) and a dessert sake (300ml).
Inspired by the Mizubasho blossoms from Oze National Park, the largest highland marsh in Japan, the label of the series features the eponymous flower, delicately illustrated by the famous artist and actor, Tsurutaro Kataoka. And this Artist Series project is also contributing a portion of it's proceeds to the protection of the Oze natural ecosystem.
Mizubasho Artist Series Floral Sparkling
The star of the Mizubasho Artist Series is the sparkling sake, so versatile that you can even pair it with spicy or meat dishes. Celebrate the tiny victories (and big ones too) with the sparkling sake, brewed with secondary fermentation in the bottle, producing the fine carbonation found in champagne produced in France. Featuring peach notes and a silky effervescence, this is the bubbly sake to pop to for date night or a Sunday brunch with the girls.
Mizubasho Artist Series Still
The still sake flaunts alluring notes of lychee and pear while keeping subtle notes of umami, making it exceptionally easy to drink, yet deliciously complex. Its mild and fruity profile also makes it a breeze to pair with varied food from sashimi to French cuisine. Kick off your heels at the end of a long day and enjoy a glass or two. You deserve it!
Mizubasho Artist Series Dessert
The dessert sake features a beautiful bouquet of apricot and peach notes, perfect with fresh fruits or even cheese. Desserts are instantly made divine with the sublime fruity notes of the Mizubasho dessert sake. Its subtle sweetness sets off most dishes well. From spicy appetizers, fruity desserts or sweet brunch dishes like waffles, the Mizubasho Artist Series Dessert Sake is the perfect drink to finish off your meal with.
Each of the three sakes is distinct, delicious and balanced on its own, boasting beautiful floral and fruity notes that are not too sweet.
