Food Pairings: Traditional Spanish tapas and toppings such as green olives, Marcona almonds, dry and mild white cheeses, thinly sliced ham, croquetas and fried potatoes. Also complements tempura, grilled calamari and chicken breast, and is excellent for making sake-based martinis.
Tasting Notes: Sho Chiku Bai Extra Dry Junmai is a traditional Junmai sake but with very little sweetness. This gives it a lighter, crisper mouthfeel and a clean finish. This, along with its gently savory palate, makes it a good food-pairing sake and also an excellent ingredient in cocktails.
