Review: Gekkeikan Zipang Sparkling Sake

Sake continues its slow but inexorable push into American cocktails and bottles, this time with Gekkeikan’s Zipang Sparkling Sake beverage.

Like saké2me, Zipang is a single-serve bottle (though larger, at 250ml). Unlike saké2me though, Zipang isn’t flavored, it’s literally just sake given a light carbonation.

If you like sake, you’ll really enjoy Zipang. Served nice and cold, it’s a crisp and lightly sweet drink with the flavor of decent enough sake. With a very heavy cantaloupe flavor, it would pair well with a first course or a salad. Heavier meals, of course, overpower the drink entirely.

At just 7 percent alcohol, drink all you want.

B+ / $6 per 250ml bottle /
