The House Of Gekkeikan Introduces Suzaku

World's Finest Sake Brand Announces Addition of Junmai Ginjo-Shu

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sidney Frank Importing Co., Inc., a leader in ultra premium spirits, is proud to introduce Suzaku premium sake to the House of Gekkeikan.  Suzaku, meaning "guardian of the South," refers to the mythological Japanese name for the Vermillion bird and is the first-ever Junmai Ginjo-Shu or "Ginjo" to be introduced to Gekkeikan's portfolio in the U.S.

Founded in 1637 by the Okura family, The House of Gekkeikan produces the world's finest sake with nearly 400 years and 14 generations of sake brewing, making it one of the oldest family-operated businesses in the world and one of the most respected names in sake. Gekkeikan means "Crown of Laurel," a testament to the company's commitment to excellence.

Over the centuries, Gekkeikan has refined its sake brewing techniques to combine culture and tradition with innovation, resulting in a comprehensive line of sakes that are ideal for food pairings and adaptable for various consumption methods. Gekkeikan Japan is located in the prestigious Fushimi region within the Kyoto Prefecture. Fushimi, meaning "hidden water," refers to the pristine waters of the region, renowned for their softness and low mineral content, which produces smooth, well-rounded refined sakes that are lightly fragrant and extremely versatile.

Made from a combination of fresh spring water, yeast, koji and the finest rice, Suzaku is carefully fermented at a low temperature to produce its fine fruity aroma that includes delicate notes of pear, honeydew and pineapple. The taste is remarkably smooth on the palate with a creamy body that leads to a light fruit finish.  Suzaku complements an array of foods ranging from light fare dishes such as grilled white fish and seared scallops to rich flavored meats such as BBQ pork and beef ribs.

"We are extremely excited to add Suzaku to The House of Gekkeikan," says Yoshi Yumoto, Vice President and Gekkeikan National Sales Manager at Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc. "The House of Gekkeikan's portfolio is extensive with at least one offering in each of the four main sake categories, comprised of an array of 15 top quality sakes and plum wines that appeal to sake novices and sake aficionados alike."

Suzaku is available nationwide in the 720ml and 300ml sizes with a suggested retail price of $24.99 (720ml).  This premium sake is best enjoyed slightly chilled or at room temperature.

All sakes from the House of Gekkeikan are sulfite and gluten free. Gekkeikan Sake is imported by Sidney Frank Importing Co., Inc., New Rochelle, NY 10801. www.gekkeikan-sake.com.
