Like fresh snow on mountain tops

Tokubetsu means “special” in Japanese, and Hakkaisan "Tokubetsu Junmai" is special indeed. The naturally soft water used in its brewing comes from snow that melts off the peak of the Mountain Hakkai. The dry body is preceded by mild and creamy texture. A flavor of almond and vanilla with a hint of a lactic character melts across the palate like a snowflake caught on the tongue. With a deep, satisfying taste tailored to compliment many foods, Hakkaisan "Tokubetsu Junmai" will easily become a house favorite.
