Niigata Agricultural Institute, Niigata Sake Institute, and the consortium of Niigata sake breweries spent 15 years to launch a new sake rice variety, called Koshi Tanrei. The rice is grown only in Niigata, only for Niigata sake producers. Ten To Chi “Heaven and Earth” is one of the first Koshi Tanrei-based sakes that have been made commercially available in Japan.
Ten To Chi Heaven and Earth Junmai Daiginjo Sake is dry, mild, clean, medium bodied, and lightly aromatic.
It pairs very well with tuna and salmon sashimi, roasted duck or chicken, prosciutto.
