Prepare yourself for an experience when you open up a cold Funaguchi. With a rich taste and and honey tone, it's no wonder this sake has held constant popularity in Japan. Not being subjected to pasteurization or blending makes this sake viscous, and gives it a strong, full-bodied flavor to match its slightly higher than average alcohol content. Drink to quench your thirst as you sit pool-side, or as the first toast of a great night.
