Lighter than clouds

Made using fresh ingredients right from Fukushima, where it’s brewed. Like the label’s soft pink circular pattern, Ninki-ichi “Sparkling” graces you with soft, sweet aromas of ume plum and white chocolate. Each sip delivers a frothy light body accompanied by flavors of pear and spiced apple. The delicacy of this sake makes it a stellar aperitif or palate cleanser between courses. Best served in a champagne glass.
