Hakkaisan “Awa” Clear Sparkling

Niigata Prefecture


Champagne’s arch enemy

In preparation for the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, Hakkaisan Brewing Company came out with Hakkaisan Clear Sparkling “AWA” specifically as a replacement for champagne. This sake is light, clear and, of course, bubbly. A secondary in-bottle fermentation adds to the effervescence which gently drops sweet, fruit flavor over your palate. We’re excited to open a bottle for the Olympics torch ceremony. In the meantime, Hakkaisan Clear Sparkling “AWA” can make any occasion a celebration. Who needs champagne anyway?

Hakkaisan Brewery Company

Hakkaisan Brewery Company

Niigata Prefecture

Founded in 1922, Hakkai Brewing Company is situated at the foot of Mount Hakkai in Niigata. The spring water that flows from the mountains is used to produce its sake. The guiding principles of the brewery are to produce the finest sake that people will never have too much of, to apply the highest standards of production to all its sake, and in order to achieve the smooth wonderfully pure and mellow flavors of Hakkaisan sake, the Brewery insists on producing in small batches, using hand-made koji and slow fermentation at low temperatures.
