Junmai Daiginjo (純米大吟醸) is known to be the highest grade of sake available in Singapore and is renowned worldwide for its distinctive flavour and aroma. Daiginjo is brewed using a special method that involves rice with a milling rate of 50% or less of its original size. The amount of the outer layer of the rice grain that has been removed during the polishing process is referred to as the rice polishing ratio. For Junmai Daiginjo, the outer coating of the rice grain must be removed to reveal the inner core of the grain in at least 50% of the cases. This results in a light and smooth-tasting beverage with a subtle sweetness. Junmai Daiginjo is brewed using specially selected yeast, pure water, and other ingredients such as koji and lactic acid bacteria. The alcohol content of Junmai Daiginjo typically ranges between 15% and 16%.
