This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
Yoko and Kayoko have visited Hakkaisan a few times and are always in awe of how much care goes into their sake-making. All of their sakes use spring water from the Hakkaisan Mountain, called Raiden-sama no mizu or "water of the god Raiden. This is the hallmark of their sake: clean, easy to drink, and food friendly. This ginjo is a testament to these traits and passed Kayoko's father Kuni’s tough screening for a good sake. His test is simply that you want more after your last sip. And you’ll want more of this!
You’ll get tay and bubblegum, and ripe tropical fruit on the nose, while the taste is more green: cucumber, grass, and cedar. Its finish is dry. Enjoy cold with vongole pasta, maguro sashimi, and tonkatsu.
