Sake you can count on

An excellent junmai from Hakutsuru Brewing Company. Don’t expect anything overly snazzy, but we think that’s the point of this brew. It boasts robust, toasty flavors matched with an easy dryness that make it such a solid stand by. And if you find yourself craving sake on a cold winter day, don’t worry, Hakutsuru Junmai is just as delicious warm as it is cold. Pair with grilled meats or creamy pastas.
