Wine barrel aged SAKE
To create a Japanese sake that can be enjoyed all over the world, we developed a Japanese sake that can be paired with Western dishes such as Italian or French.
We created ORBIA, in the pursuit of a full-bodied sake to balance out the bold seasoning and dishes heavy with oil in most western dishes, with a rich, mellow aroma that can be enjoyed when drinking from a wine glass.
The fruity aroma stimulates the appetite and the natural acidity and the sweetness of the rice surrounds the meal, brings about a new breeze to your dinner table.
Aged in an oak barrel used for wine
The mellow fragrance is created from the ageing process in oak barrels.
By using the oak barrels used for storing wine, the ORBIA series have a fruity, intricate fragrance from the grapes, and a somewhat smokey and vanilla-like sweetness from the oak barrels.
