What am I drinking?

Junmai Daiginjo = rice grain has been polished down to a minimum of 50% before brewing. General rule of thumb, the lower the percentage, the purer the flavor, and the more expensive the product. This sake is made utilising only rice, yeast and water for a pure flavour.

You have here, among the top 6% of all sake that is produced in Japan annually.
