        Winemaker Notes

        Clear appearance. Aromas of fermenting Asian pear, grape must, tape, and powdered milk aromas and flavors with a soft, supple dryish medium body and a dusty potato skin, wax paper, and delicate peppery spice accented finish. A rather enigmatic soju.

        Yaegaki, producer of Alakey, was named after the famous classic poem compiled in Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters), has progressed steadily since its foundation in 1666 by constantly developing new technologies and traditions in sake.

        There is no harshness or roughness to Alakey, as you may find in other distilled spirits. With its subtle fragrance and clean taste, this soju can be enjoyed in a variety of ways: warm, cold, on the rocks, or mixed with cocktails.

        The wine world is vast and constantly expanding. With shifts in climate, fashion, trands and technology, new regions are constantly developing. Through research and experimentation enologists and winemakers continue to develop an understanding of which varieties work best on which vineyard sites. Often, since these regions have yet to gain worldwide popularity, they are great sources for the savvy consumer looking to try something new and interesting at a budget-friendly price.

        Sake with the lowest milling requirement at no less than 30% milled, so that 70% of each rice grain remains, is simply called Junmai. It is made of water, koji mold, yeast and rice. The categories of saké are established not by rice variety, but by their polishing or milling percentages. Junmai is also brewed in the absence of added alcohol. Some brewers, in search of other flavors, aromas and textures, will add a small amount of distilled alcohol during the brewing process. But the alcohol in any saké labeled Junmai will come purely from fermentation.
