An organic junmai sake brewed using the “fourth-stage mashing” (yodan-jikomi) technique, which involves adding an extra fourth batch of rice to the main mash during the brewing process. This technique usually imparts the sake a highly sweet flavour, but Niida Honke only used ⅓ (hence the 3.33 in the name) of the amount of rice for the final addition. This means that in this bottle the sweetness is much more restrained and the sake has a charming, fully-matured melon aroma but the flavour is perfectly balanced with a nice acidity.
