Tradition never tasted so good

A traditional sake brewed at a traditional mountain brewery and named after a local ritualistic event where dancers in masks whirl and pound their drums—what’s cooler than that? This light and dry brew greets you with a nose of ripe banana that flows into a nicely nutty flavor. Undertones of toasted malt arise from it being a yamahai junmai, and honestly you won’t want to miss this one!
