Junmai Ginjo FAQs

What is the difference between Junmai and Junmai Ginjo?

Due to the rice polishing process, Junmai Ginjo sake has a smoother and more refined flavor than Junmai sake. Junmai Ginjo requires removing at least 40% of the original rice weight, while Junmai only requires removing 30%. Also, it can have a distinct aroma and a lighter body when made with a higher grade of rice. Finally, it has a higher alcohol content than Junmai, usually ranging from 16–17%. In comparison, Junmai usually has an ABV between 15-16%. You can also try our Junmai Daiginjo range as well.

How do you drink it?

Junmai Ginjo is best served chilled at 8–10°C, but can also be enjoyed warm or at room temperature. Savoring the taste and appreciating the balance between acidity and sweetness is important when drinking it. Masu boxes, a traditional cedar wood container, are perfect for drinking ginjo sake and can be found in Japanese restaurants and online. To drink from a masu box, pour the Ginjo sake onto the lips, lift it with both hands, and tilt it towards your mouth.

What does Junmai Ginjo taste like?

Junmai Ginjo has a light, fruity, and floral aroma with a smooth and complex flavor. It can have notes of melon, banana, pear, cherry blossom, apple, or pineapple, and can range from crisp to sweet to earthy. It typically has a light body and a creamy, silky, and smooth texture and can be enjoyed on special occasions or with food pairings such as sashimi or grilled fish. It’s also popular for sake-based cocktails. Enjoy it chilled or at room temperature to appreciate its richness.

Can you heat up Junmai Ginjo?

You can heat Junmai Ginjo, but it’s important to be careful not to unbalance the delicate flavors and brewer’s alcohol. Slowly warm the sake in hot water (around 120–130 °F or 49–54°C) and avoid boiling or microwaving it. After heating, let it cool slightly before serving.

Alternatively, enjoy Junmai Ginjo at room temperature to bring out its flavors and nuances.

Can sake damage your liver?

Drinking too much sake can damage your liver, like other forms of alcohol. Moderation is key, and it is important to drink responsibly and not exceed recommended limits. Drinking on an empty stomach or combining sake with other types of alcohol should be avoided.
