This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!

Inspired by how people stored their food throughout history in Niigata, Hakkaisan Brewery Co. piled tons of snow into a warehouse and created a yukimuro (snow refrigerator) that does not require any electricity and maintains a steady temperature of 35°F all year long.*

This sake, made with Yeasts #1001 and M310, is umami-heavy with an apple-like sweetness and a clean finish that can only be achieved through aging. When Yoko asked Hakkaisan’s Global Brand Ambassador Tim Sullivan how he enjoys this sake, he said, “To emphasize the dry finish I drink it chilled. To enjoy the savory umami notes, I warm it up and pair it with beef short ribs.”

*Kayoko and Yoko visited the yukimuro at Hakkaisan – see the photos!
