    Winemaker's Notes:

    A prominent fragrance, a clean and fresh taste, with flavor deep into the recesses. Truly one of the "Rolls-Royces" of saké.

    Each year, after the temperature drops below 14 Fahrenheit, Takasago builds an Ice Dome outside the main kura building. It is an igloo inside of which the temperature stays about 28 F, with 90% humidity and no wind The low temperature means "nasty bacteria" cannot survive, allowing them to make clean, pure, ultra-premium saké. Additionally, they separate the clear saké from the fermenting rice lees not by pressing, but rather by putting it into canvas bags and allowing the saké to drip out slowly overnight.

    Got this as a gift for two of my sake-loving friends. One said he loved it and it was refreshingly smooth and delicious. The second said it was the best sake he's had!

    a very smooth refreshing clean and crisp taste with little to no after taste, I prefer mine slightly chilled as suggested on the bottle but I have tried it warmed and it equally as good. A very premium Sake

    Sent this to my wife for her birthday. SHE LOVES IT. Best Sake she has ever had. Before it was from the expensive local Japanese steak house, but now she can enjoy this much superior Sake at home. Just heat and serve.

    Best sake ever had. The fruit flavors and mild "alcoholness", makes this truly Divine.
