Each sip is a new experience

At the highest of quality that the Kubota brand can offer, this sake uses Koshitanrei sake rice made from Yamadanishiki and Gohyakumangoku, the king and queen of sake rice. The brewers use genkei seimai, a unique rice polishing process that takes twice as long to polish this exquisite rice, then use 1/5 of normal pressure when extracting. The result is sake with a floral first sip, a second sip of complex flavor and, followed by a third sip of bliss.
