Pushing the boundaries never tasted so good

Rihaku was the first producer to challenge the reputation of nigori as being thick and unrefined by making Japan‘s first dry, light nigori. The delicate pressing of this sake and the low milling rate (58%) add incredible layers of complexity.It provides layers of roasted nuts, dark plum and a citrus peel finish.
