Brewed in Niigata, Japan, Naeba Brewery is one of the oldest family owned breweries. Using pure snowmelt water and highly milled sake rice, this sake is dry, rich, balanced and crisp. The sake bottle is made to attract attention.
Very clean, light and dry. It can be drunk on its own in a wine glass, or using to make cocktails. It is a modern take on a age-old classic.
