Katoukichibe Shouten Born Gold

Katoukichibe Shouten Born Gold


Our Take

The original romance. While I was at my first sake festival, I knew I was coming across a special brewery after shaking hands with the slick, pomade hair-styled owner. 

True to the name, Born Gold by Katoukichibe Shouten is an outstanding daiginjo with a translucent golden hue. Look for notes of fruity melon on the nose, a rounded body and Asian pear on the palate.

Born Gold is a tasty and elegant sake. It’s good for beginners and seasoned tasters alike, with a bottle that’s impressive to look at too.  Serve chilled, with fish or on its own.
