The Sakura Emaki is made from the ancient purple rices known as Asamurasaki and Okunomurasaki, two varieties long thought lost. During an excavation of an ancient fort these grains were rediscovered. The Ministry of Agriculture petitioned Akita Seishu brewery (home of Dewatsuru) to develop a sake utilizing these heirloom grains and the Sakura Emaki was born. Deriving its pinkish hue from the grain (which is a deep purple) this has much in common with the wine-based rosés. The flavor profile is strawberries, watermelon and cherry blossoms. So unique and so beautiful.
