The Ginjo Aged Sake has a special rich flavour and aroma not unlike a good whisky. Stored in brandy barrels for 12 years, the sake turns a light gold and gains an aroma of caramel and almond that adds to its full bodied taste and long finish.
Saito Junmai Sake is rich and dry sake with fruity aroma, essentially green apple. This medium bodied sake has a long dry tail with a tad of acidic finish. Recommend to match with strong-tasting dishes such as hamburger, meat sauce and fried food.

The most eye-catching of the collection, the Premium Junmai bottle is a bright, smoky blue that almost glows when the light hits it. The sake itself is made in a Yamahai brewing method that gives it width and depth in flavour, so it’s medium bodied with a semi-dry taste. You can expect a long finish with a tiny amount of acidity.
One of the more unique bottles of this collection, this aged Shochu saw five years storage in a tank, then one year using brandy barrel. As a result it’s rich in flavour and has an aroma of sweet vanilla. Serving suggestions recommend on the rocks, or with soda.
The Shochu’s mild and fruity flavour is created through low temperature fermentation, distillation under reduced pressure, and using Fushimizu water (the local spring water of Fushimi, Kyoto). Expect a satisfyingly crisp finish.

This sake is made from 35% polished Yamada-Nishiki (King of Sake rice). Relish in the fruitiness and moderate umami on the palate, finishing with a gentle and smooth bliss.
