Teaches compassion with every sip

This sake was made to commemorate legendary Hase Toji, who brewed here until his nineties and helped develop the Shizuoka style of fruity, dry sakes. Hase toji developed the yeast for this sake, HD1, which has since become an industry standard in producing the fruity, dry style that Shizuoka is known for. This is an unusually dry junmai daiginjo with concentrated honeydew melon and muscat grape
