A big ol' melon bomb of a daiginjo! This bottle of "Crystal Dragon" embodies the balanced nature that defines Kokuryu Sake Brewery. In our tastings, we got notes of lime zest, green apple, and the softness of mochi on the palate! It's rare to find honjozo daiginjo sake, and "Crystal Dragon" is a shining example of the style.
Nestled among the mountains of Fukui Prefecture, Kokuryu Sake Brewery champions long-standing traditional brewing methods and emphasizes local, natural beauty with their small-batch brews.
