SAKE OVERVIEW

This sake is the ultimate indulgence; made by the highest quality Yamada Nishiki rice milled down to a painstaking 35%, what is bottled is only the drops of liquid that are released via gravity at the end of fermentation, with zero force or pressure applied. The result is a dizzingly complex and unforgettable brew.

Tasting Notes

Notes of lychee, wild strawberry and grapefruit. A seamless finish with concentrated white pepper.

Food Pairing

Try paired with West Coast oysters, caviar or cheesecake.
