As reflected by its white label, this is a seasonal winter specialty so you have to grab it while you can. Hakkaisan Shiboritate is bottled straight from the press which gives it a wonderful, velvety viscosity. You can expect top freshness and bold, lush flavors of vanilla and rice that have been brought out by not pasteurizing the sake. In keeping with the winter theme, Hakkaisan Shiboritate shows off best when served chilled or even on the rocks.
Hakkaisan is brewed in Hokuriku region.
