Hakkaisan Tokubetsu Junmai Tasting Note

In Japanese tokubetsu means “special” and Hakkaisan Tokubestu Junmai is special in many ways. The signature ingredient of this sake is the fine local water, coming from melting snow and filtered by Mount Hakkai. The purity of this naturally soft water is what gives Hakkaisan Tokubetsu Junmai its very special smooth taste and flavor. Hakkaisan Tokubetsu Junmai has a very clean and dry body, it pairs well with not only sushi and sashimi but also lightly oily dishes such as tempura.
