Food + Booze: Discover the Sake Situation

Sake, Sake, Sake it to me! Last month, we got introduced to Sake from Robin Morgan – Canada’s first Sake Sommelier in iYellow School and it was fun + informative! 


 Gekkeikan Junmai Sake – Gekkeikan Traditional is the world’s most popular Junmai-shu in the LCBO! It embodies the signature Gekkeikan style and represents over 370 years and 14 generations of sake brewing experience.

Style: Herbaceous with hints of grapefruit and a light earthiness. Good acidity, mineral driven, well-balanced with a clean, medium finish.

Pairing Notes: Delicious with tempura, full flavored fish and shellfish, fresh green vegetable dishes, and coconut-based Asian dishes. A flavorful base for stocks and marinades.

Serving Suggestions: This versatile sake can be enjoyed warm, at room temperature or chilled. Excellent for sake cocktails and infusions.
