Year of the Rabbit Junmai Daiginjo, Katsuyama 勝山 金å�E幸遁E023 純米大吟é�E, 勝山
The Year of Rabbit special release is made from select brewing batches that have undergone the most strict artisanal production. The rice was milled to 50%, meaning only the inner half of each grain was used to brew the ensuing sake, and the fermentations were elongated and kept very cool to retain all of the gentle aromatics possible. This has led to an extremely elegant result, bursting forward with refined fruit flavours and floral aromas. Special gold flakes are added into the bottle as a wish for all the best in the new year. Perfect to serve or bring along in the year of the Rabbit!

En, Tokubetsu Junmai, Katsuyama 献, 特别純米, 勝山 
A beautifully elegant bottle of sake, with sweet aromas and a clean and refreshing flavour. This meticulous approach to detail results in a sake with richness to umami flavour and aromas, that can be consumed either cold or warm.

Den, Junmai Daiginjo, Katsuyama 企E 純米大吟é�E, 勝山 
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.
