Moonlit nigori

Pours with a pale, moonlight hue from which it gets its name. The soft aroma hints malted rice, and is followed by a sweetness that plays out across your palate like moonbeams playing across calm waters. The sweetness and acidity play off each other in perfect harmony to create Tsukiakari’s supreme flavor. Serve as an aperitif or pair with richly-flavored fare, but remember to raise a glass to honor the moon.
