How to enjoy

オススメの飲み方
How to enjoy_Junmai Tokubetsu

Sake comes best served in a fine wine glass to reveal its intense flavours, with delicious floral notes and the famous Japanese “umami”. Our sakes can also be enjoyed in a traditional Ochoco and Tokkuri sake set.

Perfectly complementing a range of cuisines, it offers a moreish drinkability that can be enjoyed over several courses, or just before a meal to whet your appetite. Whether you prefer it chilled to preserve the full spectrum of flavours, or gently heated on a winter’s evening, each of our sakes has a unique flavour and strength.
