Suzaku Premium Imported from Japan

Suzaku is the elegant mythical phoenix like bird that is said to be the noble guardian of the south. This junmai ginjo sake has been crafted with the ancient capital of Kyoto in mind.
Its umami and dry character are ideal for paring with a wide variety of dishes, while the large size keeps this economical for restaurants and individuals alike. Its umami, earthy feel also makes it ideal for serving at various different temperatures.


This sake opens up with very pleasing aromas of fruit. There is some gentle sweetness of lychee and bubblegum, and also a surprising tropical feel with notes of pineapple and mango on the nose.
The palate is modest and not overly complex, featuring rice and hints of apple. The acidity and crisp bitterness helps to keep the palate refreshing. Prominent umami provides the bulk of the body and makes this great for drinking alongside meals.
The finish is rather short: dry and refreshing.
