What is WOKKA SAKi?
SAKi is a blend of micro distilled grain vodka (80%), fine Japanese
sake (20%), and a subtle essence of Asian fruit. East meets
west, saké meets vodka, WOKKA SAKi represents the fusion
of two noble cultures, inspired by the awesome beauty of “Snow
Monsters” found around Japan's Asahi mountains between
January and March.
SAKi has excelled at the San Francisco International Spirits
competition for three consecutive years, having been awarded
Double Gold in 2003, Gold in 2004, and now Double Gold in 2005.
This represents an unrivalled run of results in this prestigious
competition. In addition WOKKA SAKi has been rated 96/100 in
a taste test by Paul Pacult (a.k.a. 'The Spirits Guru USA'),
his highest categorical rating.
makes WOKKA SAKi so special?
all in the blend.... a rare process of three step micro distillation
in a single 400 litre stainless steel pot still known as “Tom
Thumb”, ensures the grain vodka in WOKKA SAKi is exceptionally
smooth. Fine imported Japanese saké is then carefully
blended with the vodka and a subtle fusion of Asian fruit is
added that harnesses the character of WOKKA SAKi and gives it
its distinctive flavor. This labour intensive process of single
batch distillation and manual blending is reserved for only
the finest and most expensive spirits.
Inspired by 'Snow Monsters':
year between January and March, powerful winds from the Siberian
plains whip the surface of the Sea of Japan, becoming heavy
with freezing vapor before hitting the Japanese coast and rising
high over the Asahi mountains. Standing in their path, giant
conifers on the slopes of Mount Zao become coated with layer
upon layer of snow and ice, until eventually their shapes are
obscured and distorted. These petrified giants seem to stalk
the valleys and are known as 'snow monsters' or 'Juhyo'. Their
awesome beauty is celebrated at Mount Zao's annual Snow Monster
SAKi is personified by the creation of the Snow Monsters:
The Western wind (represented by vodka), the eastern environment
(saké) and the beautiful and unique outcome (WOKKA
