The taste of a daiginjo isn’t one that is easily forgotten. Hakutsuru’s Sho-Une Daiginjo is no exception. The slightly dry, full-bodied saké with velvety smoothness drinks like a dream. Soft aromas of pear give way to flickers of white peach and grapes in this wonderfully complex daiginjo.
Enjoyment: Perfect on its own, but if you want a classic Japanese experience then try it with delicately cut fresh sashimi over sweet rice.
Tozai celebrates the balance between Japan's east & west and honors the Japanese koi fish, known for it's longevity and healthy life (some live to over 200 years!). Night Swim brings this iconic brand to you in an accessible, pocket-sized can perfect for the pool and beyond.
Refreshing notes of banana, baked pear and caramelized pineapple with hints of orange and mint.
Try paired with grilled favorites like pork and chicken kabobs, sweet and sour slaw or grilled peaches.
This savory sake is inspired by local legends of Niigata's annual fox-bride festival. Local lore tells of mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt. Kirin in the distant past, which are claimed to be the lanterns carried in the fox-bride procession. With a 50% polishing rate, this sake could technically qualify as a Junmai Daiginjo, but the savory notes and food pairing versatility identify more with the style expected from Junmai Ginjo.
Intense aromas of grilled nuts, pistachio, and a hint of white chocolate. Ripe honeydew notes finish crisp with a hint of lingering sweetness.
One of the best meat pairings in the portfolio. Try with duck, fig-stuffed pork loin, or black cod with miso glaze.
This Limited Release Ginjo has a brilliant nose filled with peach, strawberry, and minerals. Talk about a fruity beast! A superbly innocent sake that has baskets of ripe fruit tones including strawberries and mangos that dance in a silky and clean flow. The softness of this Ginjo and the vivid acidity are muted by a fruitiness without being sweet. A tremendous treat for those looking for a fruity experience but don't want gooey sweet.
Seasonally released during the fall, Akabu Junmai Hiyaorishi is layered with aromas of banana, melon, honeysuckle and violet. Gentle sweetness and comfortable acidity spread in your mouth, balanced with excellent umami and finishing with a sharp flavor of muscat.
Best Served: Chilled.
Food Pairing: Fatty autumn fish like Salmon or Sanma.

With broad appeal and a memorable, sturdy flavor, this sake has the ability to complement even the most wine-unfriendly vegetables. This Junmai Ginjo is made with Yamada Nishiki rice, known as the pinnacle of quality for sake rice. It is named after the famous Chinese poet, Li Po, who was said to drink a bottle of sake and write one hundred poems.
Notes of banana and ripe honeydew with a clean, crisp acidity that highlights its light-to-medium body. The lingering finish moves from juicy fruitiness to green, herbal notes making it a great food companion.
Dreamy Clouds is quite special because its milling rate of 59% technically qualifies it as Junmai Ginjo grade - a rare quality level for a nigori (cloudy) sake. It presents an opportunity to move Nigori drinkers forward to new styles of sake.
Light and easy drinking sake named after Japan’s colorful koi fish that represent good fortune and luck. This sake represents the combination of vibrant colors, patterns, and shimmering scales that have earned Japanese koi fish the moniker “living jewels."
Aromas of white grape, anise, and a hint of sweet rice. On the palate you will find citrus, white pepper, and fresh herbal notes with a long, clean finish.
Pair with baked herbed salmon, grilled lobster, and light poultry dishes.
Chambers and Chambers
Light and smooth. It's overall impression is very modest. It has both a savory aroma as well as a sweet aroma of wild fruits. Its fine sweetness and crisp acidity are well balanced.
