Add-ons total:


This exceptional sake is crafted using a unique maturation process with pristine spring water from the sacred Mt. Hakkai and carefully selected Yamada Nishiki rice. After brewing, the sake is covered in layers of snow and stored in a temperature-controlled cellar for 3 years. The snow acts as a natural insulator, providing a consistent, gentle cold environment for the sake to mature. This process allows the sake to undergo subtle changes and develop a refined character with complex flavours. Mellow, fruity aromas, with hints of honeydew and pear and a long, lingering finish is what is most striking in this sake.

Pairs well with seafood dishes, as well as grilled meats and vegetables.

Best served chilled.

Grade: Junmai Daiginjō
Junmai (lit. ‘pure rice’) indicates that no additional alcohol or additives were used in the brewing process.
Daiginjō is a premium category sake known for its high-quality, often fragrant aroma and refined flavour. To be classified as daiginjō the sake must meet specific requirements such as the polishing ratio of the rice being at least 50% (meaning that the rice is 50% of its original size). This process removes the impurities and undesirable flavours contained within the outer shell of the rice, leaving only the starchy inner core and allowing for a smoother and more delicate sake.
