This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection! It was featured in February 2022 "Kayoko's Hometown Pairing: Saitama x Oakland".
Located in Hanyu since 1860, Nanyo makes this cult status junmai daiginjo with local Saitama yeast and well water on premise. Get lush flavors of ripe peach, melon, and custard. They used the shizuku method, a labor-intensive filtration process that is free-falling as opposed to the usual pressed filtration, resulting in a richer sake in both aroma and texture. We loved this chilled in a white wine glass with Soba Ichi’s iconic tamagoyaki (egg omelette), Joodooboo’s fresh tofu and various seasonal banchan, or Nam Kao from Vientian Cafe
