Gin no Iroha, Junmai Daiginjo, Katsuyama - 吟のいろは - 純米大吟醸
Made from the new sake rice released in 2020 - Gin no Iroha, this Junmai Daiginjo is designed for fruity aroma with a soft and smooth texture. Made and released in very limited quality.
Den, Junmai Daiginjo, Katsuyama - 伝, 純米大吟醸
A junmai daiginjo at the pinnacle of traditional sake brewing, it features a fruity aroma and distinct rich flavors. Of special note is that, unlike daiginjo sake made by adding alcohol, this sake has the true characteristics of a junmai daiginjo. The crisp and clean umami stands out clearly and lingers as a distinct aftertaste. It is an excellent choice for drinking with tuna sashimi, from fatty to medium fatty and red, and with salmon sushi or other flavorful foods. It also goes well with meat and meat dishes, whether prepared in Japanese or western styles, and other such foods that bring out the umami. Den comes from the word for "tradition," referring to the traditional way this sake is brewed. The name Den also means "to convey" thoughts and feelings.

Sensho Masamune Junmai Daiginjo -戰勝政宗, 純米大吟釀
