Elegant rich, yet mellow flavors that linger comfortably on the palate. This Junmai Ginjo is specially brewed to be enjoyed on long Autumn nights. We brew this Sake with the freshest harvest rice during the coldest winter days. It is then left in the tank to mature slowly until next Autumn and shipped without the usual 2nd pasteurization process, this is where the name, “Hiya Oroshi” or “cold shipping”, comes from. This is done to allow this Sake to maintain the superb flavor gained from the long slow maturation period.
