Japanese: 大吟醸 or 大吟醸酒
Premium sake in which the rice grains have been polished to at least 50% of their original size. It is made with rice, koji, water, yeast, and a small amount of distilled alcohol. Daiginjo have the highly fragrant fruity and floral aromas of ginjo while reaching upper levels of elegant and delicate taste, where umami notes are reduced even more. The addition of distilled alcohol imparts even more clarity to the already smooth and pure flavour.
