What is GINJO sake?
A premium class of sake, ginjo sake became a possibility as brewing and milling techniques were improved and was actually developed less than 100 years ago. Fragrant and fresh, ginjo sake must be made with rice polished to at least 60%. Ginjo is slowly brewed at low temperatures and is commonly made with fragrant yeast strains and special rice for brewing known as sakamai. Best enjoyed slightly chilled, room temperature or slightly warmed.
