Simplicity at its best

For all its mystique, good sake comes down to three things: rice, water and the brewer’s skill. Nihonsakari has all three. Wielding generations of brewing knowledge, Yamadanishiki rice, and the famed miyamizu, a special water, the brewers at Nihonsakari crafted “Fuga,” a sake so graceful and pure it should be in an art gallery. If you’re looking for a true taste of Japan, or just a go-to sake, look no further.
