A soft, serene daydream

Izumo Fuji “Shimane Local” greets you with the welcoming aroma of white, spring flowers, which compliments the gentle rice flavor. Ancient tradition is strong with this brew as it uses a fune press which takes days of careful and skillful labor, but results in a soft, smooth sake. After a first taste you might find notes of melon and white pepper that give this sake a slight zing.
