To enjoy with your friends and family

Imagine stepping into a rice field on a summer afternoon, where one of the top quality Yamadanishiki is grown. This sake is full bodied as expected for a junmai from Saga Prefecture, with a vegetal note and hint of sweet rice that lifts and expands on your palate. Enjoy it, even after it cools down, as it will comfort you with kindness like taking a nice warm bath.
