This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
An Umami Mart exclusive!
Yoko's love for sake started with this bottle. It took over two years and some arm twisting to get this sake in the United States. Open a bottle of this sake and notice a bouquet of mushrooms and warm apples. It's aroma is so unique to Shinkame, you'll smell it from a mile away. Taste one drop and experience how the umami expands in the mouth and on the tongue, yet finishes satisfyingly clean.
Matured for over two years, this sake is smooth and pairs with virtually anything – from sushi to turkey to shabu shabu. Drink it chilled or at room temperature, but you must try it warm too, or else Ogawahara-san (the previous brewery owner) will turn in his grave.
