The yuzu fruit used for this authentic Japanese sake is from Shibata’s local farm and is all organic. Shibata Black Yuzu has a Junmai sake base, using Ginpu rice from Hokkaido, which is clear and has a nice aroma. The yuzu is squeezed with the skin left on, thereby allowing for the juice to not be too sweet, with an added touch of tartness. Each individual yuzu fruit yields only about 20 mL of juice. Best served chilled, this sake pairs well with vanilla and other sweets.
