About Shirakabegura Mio Sparkling Sake
Shirakabegura Mio Sparkling Sake – Mio for short – is a softly acidic and deliciously refreshing sake with subtle fruit notes that’s low in alcohol at just 5% ABV. Mio contains no added sugar or sweetener; the source of it’s all-natural sweetness is nothing more than a careful fermentation process. This is a unique drink with all-round appeal.
Shirakabegura’s other premium sake: Kimoto Junmai is brewed through a traditional labour intensive technique, known as kimoto, which makes this sake complex with a fragrant and melon-rich nose that develops into a soft and medium bodied palate with a good balance of acidity. Daiginjo Muroka Genshu is a non-charcoal filtered daiginjo brewed at a cool temperature, with hints of apple and a smooth flavour. Junmai Daiginjo is a flagship product that has an exceptionally delicate ginjo aroma with a mellow banana note and a crisp finish.
