Did someone say umami?

The first thing you’ll notice when you pour out your first glass of this sake is its color, a tantalizing white gold hue. This hints at the sake’s longer than normal brewing process, which helps develop a distinct medium-dry quality. This dryness combines with sweet orange and even notes of barley that culminate in a drawn out finish. If you’re in to umami, this sake will fill your quota. Try this one out with a charcuterie board or cheese plate to heighten the sensation.
