Elegance at its finest

Accompanied by a charming blue bottle, the Kikusui “Junmai Ginjo” is a must try. It has an light, playful essence with the perfect dash of dry. Being surprisingly smooth, you'll find yourself unable to resist the comforting freshness, which comes from the highly-polished rice used its brewing. Its medium-body taste delivers a touch of Mandarin orange, making this sake a unique substitute for white wine that could easily become a house favorite.
