Hotel Okura Manila’s signature Japanese fine dining restaurant, Yamazato, is pleased to announce the launce of a premium Japanese sake flight featuring a collection of three exclusive varieties to showcase unique flavors and craftmanship. Adventurous sake lovers can indulge in 60ml pours of Hakushika Tokusen Ginjo Namachozo, Honjozo Namachozo, and Gouka Sennenju Junmai Daiginjo.
Located at the second floor of the hotel and currently accessible through the Newport Grand Wing at Resorts World Manila, Yamazato has added the premium Japanese sake flight to its extensive collection of world-class beverage offerings. Guests can experience the curated flight of three Hakushika sakes for Php880 (excluding service charge and other applicable government taxes) until February 29, 2020.
Hakushika is one of Japan’s well-renowned sake breweries enjoying increasing popularity throughout the world. It is usually paired with a wide range of Japanese dishes or appreciated on its own. They brew their sake at Nishinomiya using the famed “miyamizu” pure water that springs from Mt. Rokko. It has three premium variants: the Tojusen Ginjo Namachozo which is matured at low temperatures and it is only pasteurized right before bottling; Honjozo Namachozo is brewed in small amount of alcohol to enhance the flavor and smooth finish; and, Gouka Sennenju Junmai Daiginjo has fruity fragrance with rich body and smooth taste that has won an award in Brussels for the 2011 Monde Selection Grand Gold Medal.
Sake can be enjoyed warm, in room temperature or chilled depending on the type of sake served—the season or climate, and personal preference. A warm cup of Junmai sake is enjoyable during a cold day while a chilled glass of draft sake is well-suited for a warm summer day.
