The perfect pairing of bold and sweet

Katsuyama has its roots in brewing sake for feudal lords, including a renowned samurai, Date Masamune. Now, the brewery's lord-worthy range of sake includes this expert Junmai Ginjo. It is slightly heavier and drier, which mixes to create a bold flavor, and just a hint of sweetness. Next time you're pouring a glass of the Katsuyama Ken remember to make a toast to the lords of old.
