Inishie no Bishu Ginjo Sake
From brewer Takumi Sousei, this aged sake took home prestigious awards, including a gold medal at the Concours Mondial des Vins Féminalise 2021 (international wine contest Féminalise) in the Japanese sake category. Sake sommeliers describe Inishie no Bishu as a drink with clean acidity but also a mellow aroma of butter and sweetness of banana.
Hyakujuro Junmai Daiginjo Sake
Brewed in Gifu Prefecture by Hayashi Honten, this sake was inspired by the Japanese tradition of cherry blossom-viewing and a local story. Ninety years ago, Gifu kabuki actor Hyakujuro Ishikawa donated 1,200 cherry trees to the city. Together, these trees became one of the area’s most popular hanami locations. Inspired by the tale, Hayashi Honten created this refreshing sake with hints of grapefruit and a smooth mouthfeel.
