There’s a reason “Brewer’s Pride” is in the name. Hakatsuru Brewing Company let head brewmaster Masao Nakazawa created a sake he could drink everyday and be proud of. As it turns out, this futsushu grade sake with minimal rice polishing and some added alcohol was just the sake the head brewmaster wanted. The medium body delivers a playful complexity underneath its light dryness. Different faces of the sake come out when served at different temperatures. Definitely the sake to drink after a long days work.
Hakutsuru is brewed in Kinki region.
