Tokubetsu means “special” in Japanese, and Hakkaisan Tokubetsu Junmai is special indeed. The naturally soft water used in its brewing comes from snow that melts off the peak of the Mountain Hakkai. The dry body is preceded by mild and creamy texture. A flavor of almond and vanilla with a hint of a lactic character melts across the palate like a snowflake caught on the tongue. With a deep, satisfying taste tailored to compliment many foods, Hakkaisan Tokubetsu will easily become a house favorite.
Hakkaisan is brewed in Niigata Prefecture in the Hokuriku region.
