MATCHING BRANDS, RESTAURANTS

A number of Sake varieties, ranging from Honjozo to Ginjo and Daiginjo,
go well with creamy, sweet oysters.
In particular, the ideal accompaniment is a crisp, refreshing Sake,
as its dryness fully draws out the umami and mineral flavour of the oysters.
Sushi employs a variety of fish, covering everything from the light to the richly flavoured,
so suits pairing with a richly fragrant Sake of just the right level of sweetness.
It also harmonises with the vinegar-flavoured umami of the sushi rice
to create flavours that complement and overlap in a deeply satisfying way.
A light type of sparkling Sake with soft bubbles that lightens
the oil in the fish and chips while blending with the mineral umami of the fish.
Add extra depth to the flavours with some tartar sauce.
Enjoy a harmony of umami, sweetness and salt!
A great pairing that contrasts the strong saltiness of the ham with a rich, sweet Sake.
Combined with the clean aftertaste of a mellow Sake,
the fats of the ham melt away with sensuous delight.
The Sake also draws out the salty, umami flavours of the ham.
The umami of Sake rich in amino acid is a stunning match for cheese, another food rich in umami.
Rich cheeses such as mature cheddar, parmesan and blue cheese
should be paired with an aged Sake that offers a full, nutty aroma.
The robust sweetness and lasting reverberations of an aged Sake enhance the umami of the cheese,
which deepens the flavours of both.
Calamari, made from fried squid, can be paired with a daring, sparkling type of Sake.
The light umami of the squid combines with the rich, bubbly Sake to create complex flavours.
Add a squeeze of lemon onto the calamari for even more refreshment!

Our most popular sake is Isake Classic: Developed by the Sake Sommeliers at Isake in tandem with the toji (master sake brewer) at Tatsuuma-Honke Brewery Isake Classic’s modern take on a traditional recipe can be enjoyed cold, hot, or even at room temperature. Mixologists and bartenders have recognized its potential, and it is now being used to create gorgeous cocktails across the world. It is the perfect partner to Japanese cuisine and also finds its place with lighter Mediterranean dishes like salade nicoise as well as Greek and Italian salads. Viscous and soft in its delivery, rounded notes of orchid, vanilla and walnuts greet the palate followed by a honeydew melon finish. This is a greatly versatile sake that can be enjoyed in many ways; when chilled cleaner mineral notes of chalk and spring water are revealed, while heating up will provide a dryer outcome, with lemongrass and spice seeping through, fantastic with food.

Creamy, sweet, fresh and clean it goes well with the teriyaki and oysters.
