Size: 720ml   | ABV: 16%

In 3 words: Fruity, clean & drinkable

Great value, award-winning sake, great for both sake newbies and experts. A subtle whiff of banana penny sweets on the beak makes you want to dive right in. Then it's beautiful soft and clean junmai with melon and pear flavours, a moderate acidity and umami taste that emerges as the bottle warms from chilled to room temperature. This is a must try.
