Limited production. Only 70 cases produced.

Den Blanc is a new expression of sake made using white koji to create a pleasant citrus-like sourness together with gentle umami flavors.

White koji is commonly used for shochu making and naturally produces a higher amount of citric acid.

Due to this natural high acid production, the shubo (yeast starter) is made without adding any lactic acid.

Just like our original flagship Den, we use Calhikari rice grown by Rue & Forsman Ranch.

Tasting Notes

Inviting aromas of Asian pear, citrus, celery and jasmine phases to stone-fruits and rice flour on the palate, with mouth-watering and lengthy acidity.

Pairing Suggestions

Smoked trout & grapefruit arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette. Any dish with a citrus or acidic flavor component.
