Unmatched Earthy purity

The Yamada Nishiki rice used to brew this sake has a larger kernel, which contains the essential ingredients for creating natural, full-bodied flavor. This sake definitely has that earthy tone to it, with a shading of pear. The tail leaves a dry, awakening aftertaste that goes perfectly with a juicy steak or sweet Teriyaki chicken.

Today it still is one of the leading company to drive innovations in the industry.
