    Tasting Notes: Nothing was spared in drawing on the latest brewing philosophy, theory, and techniques in order to create the ultimate sake for today's world. Each bottle contains only the essence of Japanese sake, extracted from the rich potential, depth, and beauty of rice to create a "liquid diamond." Every technique and every effort went into this extravagant sake, which exhibits the perfect brightness, clarity, and hardness of a diamond.

    How to enjoy Katsuyama sake:  Katsuyama sakes are best chilled ahead of time and drunk in a wine glass.
    The greatness of Katsuyama sake cannot be appreciated adequately in ordinary sake cups.
    If no wine glass is available, choose a tall, wide glass with thin rim, and fill it about one-third full.
    Pour a little at a time so that the temperature does not become too warm while drinking.


    Brewery:  Katsuyama Supreme SAKE co.,Ltd (founded: 1688)

    Established in 1688, Katsuyama is a sake brewery with a tradition of well over three centuries.  It was created to brew the top-class sake enjoyed exclusively by the feudal lords of the Sendai Domain, founded by Japan’s most famous military commander and respected samurai, Date Masamune, and one of the three major fiefdoms of the era.  To this day, Katsuyama carries on the reputation and tradition of its origins as a brewery for the lords.

    Brewing only junmai-shu,the true mainstream sake, it is also the pioneer in creating sake with clean umami that goes well with any cuisine, a trend that is starting to take hold in the world of sake.
