Holiday Gift Guide

This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection! It was featured in March 2022 "Female Frontrunners".

Yuri Hayashi is the toji (head brewer) at her family’s brewery, succeeding her mother, who also acted as toji. As a child, she watched the inner workings of the brewery, and later went to the Tokyo University of Agriculture to study brewing. She cites tasting freshly pressed sake as one of the most thrilling (and nerve-wracking) experiences of being a toji. Drink this mineral-forward junmai chilled to enjoy its light, refreshing flavor. Take in aromas of brown rice and yogurt, and savor its crisp acidity alongside light dishes like tofuedamame, or an egg dish
