  1. Sawanotsuru Junmai Yamada Nishiki Sake 720ml
    Sawanotsuru Junmai Yamada Nishiki Sake 720ml
    Sawanotsuru was established in 1717, in Kobe, in the prefecture of Hyogo. The current owner, Mr Nishimura, is the 15th generation family owner.

    This is their everyday Junmai. Yamadanishiki (the king of Sake rice) is used generously. By using Yamadanishiki rice, this sake has a depth of flavor with a fruity aroma. The texture is very soft and elegant and the finish is clean and dry.

    There is gentle grip here too and nice soft spicy, white pepper overtones that work really well. For those new to sake this is cracking all-rounder. You can serve this cold or lightly warm and its super versatile as far food so have at it.

    Established in 1917. Amanoto’s brewery is located in Akita in the snowy, northern part of Japan and they are the smallest of Akita’s 47 breweries.
