Sake with a bang

This started as a limited winter seasonal product in Japan, and was rebranded for the U.S.! It comes at you with a banging 21% ABV, and it embodies the climate where the brewery is located, Niigata. Like Niigata’s heavy snowfall, “Perfect Snow” is thick in texture with the fluffy flavors of mochi and coconut. The aroma matches the flavor. Try serving over ice, cocktails or simply on its own.
