Hatsumago translates directly to “First grandchild”. This sake brand became famous in Japan as a gift item for families celebrating their first grandchild.
Light, smooth, crisp and clean finish. Great palate cleanser. Hatsumago has won the most Gold Medals in Japan within the last 20 years in National Sake Competitions.
The smooth, clean characteristics of this sake’s taste and aroma are not very common for a
kimoto sake. This sake is very unique, and very difficult to create.
Not all sake is meant to be drunk both chilled and hot, but Hatsumago is one of the exceptions and is often enjoyed warm by sake experts and connoisseurs. Warming this sake will really open up and enhance its unique characteristics. Heat to the level of your personal preference and enjoy.
Great accompaniment to sashimi, sushi, and seafood in general. Also, compliments
vinegary and lightly fried foods. This sake particularly enhances the flavor of raw
oysters, as it diminishes its fishy aftertaste.
(ex.) Any Sushi & Sashimi, Black Cod, Oyster, Caviar, Sea Urchin, Shellfish. Also pairs well with Roasted Chicken.
