Anniversary Sale

This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection! We featured it during Sakqueso (Sake + Cheese) month in June 2021.

President Takaaki Yamauchi tells us that their brewery is unique in that they support local farmers of Ibaraki by using native Watari Bune rice. This particular junmai ginjo is fruit-forward and juicy with aromas of pineapple, melon, and banana with a minerality in its flavor. Our friend and Certified Cheese Professional Kevin Corcoran recounts the winning cheese pairing: "This worked very well with the soft creamy sheep cheese, Brebirousse d’Argental, as we found a ‘third flavor’ emerging from the intersection of cheese and sake where sweet, nutty, fatty, earthy flavors mingled in complex and pleasant ways." Try this sake in a wine glass slightly chilled
