This sake is made exactly the same as Hou Hou Shu “Blue Clouds”, plus the infused addition of rose hips and hibiscus. This pink version, while technically the same as Hou Hou Shu “Blue Clouds”, has a different complexity resembling tea-like phenolics, herbal quality, rosy red fruit and an extra drying sensation on the palate.
Raspberry on nose, cranberry on palate. Overall fruity but finishes mildly tart.
Serve chilled with fruit desserts.
Shubo Method:Kohon Tohka
