Asahi Shuzo Dassai "50" Junmai Daiginjo Nigori Sake (300ml)

Possibly the sexiest Nigori we have ever tasted. You don't usually see Nigori at a Ginjo level! This is sleek and delightfully light. There is a touch of carbonation, which helps lift the sweetness of the rice. Great fruity notes and a very clean style for a creamy sake. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood)

The legendary Masumi Brewery in Nagano is widely considered one of the finest Sake operations in Japan. Founded in 1662 in the town of Suwa, the brewery committed to perfection and extreme attention to detail without giving up tradition.

Tozai "Snow Maiden" Tokubetso Junmai Nigori Sake 720ml (Unfiltered)

This is a fairly thick and chewy "nigorizake" (cloudy sake), but it is still surprisingly dry. The aromas are bright and fresh and they show a lovely ricey and fruity combination. In the mouth, this sake has solid weight and gives the same flavors of fresh fruit and creamy fresh rice that your nose told you about. The finish has a pleasant astringency and is nicely mellow, beckoning you for another mouthful. You will rarely taste a classier nigori at this price. This maybe the ultimate food-friendly nigori.

Bunraku Nihonjin No Wasuremono "The Forgotten Spirit" Yamahai Junmai Sake (300ml)

Chiyonosono Shuzo "Shared Promise" Junmai Sake (720ml)

Until this sake came along in the 1960’s, all sake had distilled alcohol added to it due to rice shortages and war rationing. After the war, Chiyonosono crafted the first junmai sake (brewed with neither distilled alcohol nor additives of any kind) and celebrated by sharing it from a large, red lacquered sake cup called a Shuhai. The brewers made a promise to one another to keep up their efforts each year to make high-quality sake from rice alone. Delicate and soft, with a hint of sweetness coddled in layers of umami. Subtle floral notes and orange citru ...

Yuho Ishikawa "Eternal Embers" Junmai Sake 720ml

We often tell people to drink that bottle of sake up quickly like a white wine. Such a delicate liquid must go bad quickly after exposure to that monster of a molecule, O2, right? Turns out, we've all been making a terrible mistake...at least some of the time. While it's true that many sake will go flat sitting in the fridge after a week, a select few will continue to open and blossom for weeks or even months. We know that sake can age in the bottle, but the Yuho is something completely different. This stuff is made like no other sake in Japan. This exci ...

Tamagawa Sake has built a reputation for producing ultra high-quality sake of great distinction.

Very pleasing for those who want fresh sake flavor, but more complexity beyond the fermented fruit flavors."
