720ml * 8% ABV * Kochi Prefecture, Japan
Japan's Kochi prefecture is found in the very south of the country and is prized for its pure water and cool climate, which facilitates the ideal production of yuzu - a citrus fruit hybrid between a mandarin orange and the ichang papeda. Here, the base sake is made from Akitsuho rice with a junmai daiginjo polishing ratio (the highest grade), which is then blended with fresh yuzu juice. This sweet yuzu sake is practically zipping with zesty citrus fruit - lemon, tangerine and lime - that's balanced by a floral lift and gentle sweetness. Excellent as a pre- or post-dinner drink, or served alongside cheesecake or fresh fruit.
