泡々酒 Hou Hou Shu Sparkling Sake

Hou Hou Shu Sparkling Sake

Have you tried this yet? It’s a sparkling sake called Hou Hou Shu. I first heard of it from a client a year ago but never had the chance to try it until today, when a coworker gave me a bottle. It’s made with unfiltered sweet sake so it has a slight cloudiness to it, and a fine natural fizz. It’s mild and sweet and reminds me of a sweet champagne, but has that unmistakable rice flavor.  I love it! Tonight I tried pairing it with an avocado and shrimp salad.

A quick search online reveals it’s quite pricey ($14.00 for a 300ml bottle at one online retailer) but it’s a very unique product perfect for celebratory occasions. I picture Hou Hou Shu at:

  • Weddings and bridal showers, with a cherry blossom petal garnish
  • Sunday brunches outdoors during springtime, with a splash of yuzu citrus
  • Sushi parties with girlfriends
