Goes hand in hand with summer fun

Brewed with a newly developed rice called "Kan no Mai" that withstands cold climates and is full of smoky, saline rice flavors. The rice name is a word made of the Japanese characters "Kan," translated to "God," and "Mai," meaning dance or stage. The specific milling rate of 68% employed in this sake results in a one-of-a-kind flavor profile. It goes perfectly well with BBQ.
