Luxury for everybody

There’s a reason this is named “Brewer’s Pride.” It’s crafted under the direction of Hakutsuru’s legendary brewmaster Masao Nakazawa, who created a luxurious sake he and the other brewers could enjoy after a long day’s work. The medium body delivers a mellow expression balanced between umami and sweetness that is slightly dry. Different faces of the sake come out when served at different temperatures.
