The makers of Yuho are an unconventional lot who like to experiment. Eternal Embers is aged for anywhere from 1-4 years before being released. An iconoclast in brewing, Yuho's brewmaster Miho Fujita simply says that she brews the sake that she enjoys drinking.
Yuho's Eternal Embers is dry, with a medium body and very high umami. Acidity is prominent and funky. The palate is citrusy and savory, with notes of orange, figs and nuts.
The Japanese characters on the bottle mean "Happy Rice" but the name Yuho also refers to "UFO" (say "Yuho" out loud), which have been often sighted in their remote, rural area.
Miho-san believes her sake can stay open longer than most and recommends actually waiting to drink them after they've been open for 1-2 months!
Drink it alongside pate, pesto, or tacos. Serve it warm or chilled.
Yuho Eternal Embers is made with Notohikari rice that has been milled to 55%. It is 16% alcohol by volume.
