Silky, well-balanced smoothness, perfectly sippable

Hakutsuru is a gentle and incredibly drinkable sake. Its nose is an aromatic concoction of melon, grape, and sweet rice. Each sip is even, with a rounded out, dry finish up. The meticulous care used during the brewing is reflected in the light complexity of the brew. Hakutsuru is charming, whether served cold or room temperature, and amiable to everyone.
