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.
A whiff of powder-sugar sweetness followed by the rush of the acidity-driven aroma of orange blossom, green melon, sour apple, green banana and Koji rice. Evocative of an early summer breeze, it’s refreshing & soothing, yet tasty, with a clean, uplifting finish.
Smoked trout & grapefruit arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette. Any dish with a citrus or acidic flavor component.
