Ozeki Hana Fuga Sparkling Sake is a type of sake, a traditional Japanese rice wine, that is carbonated to give it a bubbly, effervescent texture. This sake is produced by the Ozeki Sake Brewery, one of the oldest and most respected sake breweries in Japan.
Hana Fuga Sparkling Sake is made from a blend of high-quality rice and pure water, using traditional sake brewing methods. The rice is polished to remove the outer layer, leaving only the starchy center, which is then washed, soaked, and steamed. Yeast and koji (a type of fungus) are added to the mixture to start the fermentation process, which can take several weeks to complete.
After the sake has been fermented, it is then carbonated to give it its unique sparkling texture. The result is a refreshing and light-bodied sake with a delicate floral aroma and a slightly sweet taste. It has a low alcohol content, typically around 7-8%, which makes it easy to drink and perfect for casual occasions.
Ozeki Hana Fuga Sparkling Sake is best served chilled and can be enjoyed as an aperitif, paired with light and fresh dishes such as sushi, salads, and seafood. Its sparkling texture and delicate flavor also make it a great addition to cocktails and mixed drinks.
