Savory. Versatile. Food friendly.

Inspired by local lore, come to Niigata's annual fox festival and drink this award-winning sake. Intense aromas of pistachio and a hint of white chocolate. Ripe honeydew notes finish crisp with a hint of lingering sweetness.

SAKE OVERVIEW

This savory sake is inspired by local legends of Niigata's annual fox-bride festival. Local lore tells of mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt. Kirin in the distant past, which are claimed to be the lanterns carried in the fox-bride procession. With a 50% polishing rate, this sake could technically qualify as a Junmai Daiginjo, but the savory notes and food pairing versatility identify more with the style expected from Junmai Ginjo.

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of grilled nuts, pistachio, and a hint of white chocolate. Ripe honeydew notes finish crisp with a hint of lingering sweetness.
