Dryness that could kill demons

Being named "Onikoroshi" or "Demon Slayer," this sake has a dryness that would keep demons at bay. Don't fear, the dryness is accompanied by a wonderful, stoney flavor that gets more crisp when served cold, or becomes more savory when warmed. Pair with spicy dishes to get the full effect of the "Demon Slayer"
