An elegantly clean refined sake, 100% made in Akita. The rice was grown locally by the brewers themselves, who also created the original yeast (BL531). The taste is pure and has a refreshing body, while the aroma is quite subtle, making it an easy sake to pair with any dish! The yamahai method is a traditional way of producing the fermentation starter using ambient lactic acid bacilli.

TYPE: Yamahai junmai daiginjo sake

COLOUR: Clear water white

OUR TASTING NOTES: Banana ice cream, apple, and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Cleansing high acidity with balanced fruity profile of pears and spices. A full-body sake with a long and subtle dry finish which gives great structure to the taste.
