Creamy, rich and filled with intense tropical flavors like coconut and banana, our Momokawa Pearl is the number one Nigori Genshu in the US for a reason. It's unexpected, undiluted, minimally pressed to retain hearty rice flavors and it’s the one we were told would never be popular because "no one drinks cloudy saké." More than fifteen years later it’s our most popular nigori saké and one that we must take to festivals and tastings everywhere we go. 

Enjoyment: Chill and serve with spicy foods like Mexican mole or Thai curry, or pair it with a decadent dessert like chocolate ganache.

i'll happily be the first to review this excellent sake! pearl is an amazing value and unless you're a complete sake snob it will change the way you think about sake. awesome paired with asian dishes, but the girlfriend and i also like to get a bottle just to enjoy by itself. i just picked up one of the new label bottles and i was excited enough about it to get on this website and write a review. Trust me, get a bottle you won't regret it!

enjoyed this with a spicy pulled pork sandwich with cheddar. if "shitting in high cotton" had a flavor experience, this would be it.

The first nigori I ever had, back in 1998 or so, and still my hands-down favorite. If you've never tried it, you must. Get out your credit card, and just do it. Go on. Get some.

This is the best Saki ...because of its creamy nature ...its excellent in cooking ...I do a saki soy butter reduction for fish that is out of this world ...Because I summer in Oregon ...I am able to find it available at most stores locally ...just a mellow top notch Saki !!

This has become our favorite saki, the combination of taste and texture is perfect. I only wish more stores in the area would carry it, we've been having trouble finding it lately. Once you get accustomed to creamy saki the others just don't seem the same .

This is a pretty good nigori saké. My only complaint might be that it has a pretty pronounced astringent, bitter alcohol aftertaste, but is otherwise an overall well-rounded, full-flavored and creamy nigori.

Absolutely the bomb of sake'... my favorite of all Sake One products...but then perhaps I should come do a tasting on my way north!

just got back from Japan where nobody drinks this unfiltered stuff for whatever Japanese reason, and decided to try a bottle since my local wegmans had it on sale. Wow what a surprise! Creamy milky high ethanol, loved this stuff! Can't wait to surprise guests with it. To the uninformed it looks weird but what a fantastic mouth. Nice work

Whenever I'm in the sake section at my local Liquor store it only take a second to decide which one to go with. I also pick it up and place it in the hands of anyone else that might happen to be considering a bottle of a sake in the aisle with me. I tell them, "this is the one you want".

Absolutely the best sake on the market. I tried Pearl almost three years ago and it's the only sake I will drink. Perfect!!
