As featured on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch! Shochikubai sparkling sake, or shirakabegura mio, is a light and delicious sparkling sake, with just 5% ABV – “a new sake for a new age”. The sparkling sake has fruity aromas, with a natural sweetness from brewing rice with water and koji. It has a delicate bubbliness, and light, refreshing finish.
In Japanese, ‘mio’ is the white stream of foam which trails behind ships – a great name for a drink which is really making waves – and is now even sprayed from the podium by Japanese F1 winners instead of champagne! A bottle of Shochikubai Mio sparkling sake is a delicious aperitif. A bottle of sparkling sake is also great to open to mark a special occasion, and a wonderfully unusual present – perfect for adding a bit of sparkle to birthdays and anniversaries.
