Have you heard of Asahiyama “Junmai,” from the makers of the famed brand Kubota? This locally loved sake uses 100% Niigata rice, and has a great balance between savory and sweet. Bearing a fuller, creamy and buttery aroma on the nose, you’ll find the flavor has some rice bran sweetness and that familiar dry finish on the tongue. Serving slightly warm enhances the fuller texture that just melts on your tongue.
Asahiyama is made in
Asahi-shuzo Sake Brewing Company (Kubota)
