This Sho Chiku Bai Kimpaku Tokubetsu Junmai sake is made with the water of Fushimi, a centuries-old sake brewing region in Kyoto. The water is known to provide sake with softness and elegance. In addition, gold flakes were added, which is an ancient practice to decorate the best sake. The pleasing aromas of buttermilk, hazelnut and light rye sourdough bread expand on the palate but are joined by surprising fruity and herbal notes.

This sake has a full-body, soft mouthfeel, mellow taste with an elegant quality.

Sake: A Unique Japanese Tradition

When you hear "sake," you probably associate the drink with Japan, but you may not know the beverage's rich cultural history. It was a part of the rituals of the Imperial Court, brought out when weddings or funerals were held centuries ago. Someone finally realized that sake was too good to limit to special occasions. The drink began to be shared at other times as well, and it became part of Japanese society. Today, we make sake in the United States because its popularity has spread abroad.
