Brewed from the best

Good sake is always made from good rice. Honda Shoten followed this advice and uses Yamada Nishiki rice, sourced directly from local farmers, to craft this luxurious sake. Before brewing, the rice is milled for two days and nights, till its just a tiny pearl. Well worth the wait, this sake’s gold-flaked charm is backed up by a rich, creamy flavor and calm aroma. A few sips will carry you back, like a breeze rustling through the rice fields.
