Sake at Flo Bellevue

At our Bellevue Japanese restaurant, we offer an extensive list of different kinds of sake to go with your sushi dining experience. If you’re not familiar with sake, you might be confused by the different categories you find.

What is ginjo and daiginjo sake?

Ginjo and daiginjo both represent premium varieties of sake. These are produced by polishing the rice grains further before fermenting them into the wine. Ginjo is made with rice that has had 40% of its mass polished away, while daiginjo has been polished down to 50% or less of its original size. This creates a lighter, more delicate, and more complex taste in the finished product. Consider trying one of these fine options as a complement to your next sushi meal at Flo Bellevue.
