    Tasting Notes:  A slightly white Nigori Sake, reminiscent of melting snow.  With a soft mouth feel, characteristic of nigori, this sake also features the refreshing acidity of a junmai ginjo.  You won't tire of drinking this sake, produced with a sweetness that can still be enjoyed with food.  Only limited quantities are available, so please make sure to request yours early.


    Brewery: Tamano Hikari Brewery (founded: 1673)

    For over 300 years, Tamano Hikari Brewery has been working their hardest to brew supreme quality sake. Their motto is that "Good Sake comes from Good Rice" and so they polish all of their sake rice - obtained through contracts with private farmers - within the walls of their brewery.  They were one of the first to halt the use of additives like alcohol and sugar, but were also the first to halt use of preservatives, and basically reestablished Junmai sake. In 1980, they added Ginjo style sake to their repertoire.  Now almost all the sake they produce is Junmai Ginjo style.
