Elegant, harmonious aromas. Finely balanced, velvety smooth texture, delicate flavors (pomegranate, sweet potatoes) and long finish. It has been honored at the international Liquor Competition awards for 28 consecutive years, and has won the gold prize every year since 1977. This sake would pair well with something delicate and poached.
About the Producer
Established in Hokkaido in 1661, Otokoyama has been cherished by many historical figures in Japan since the Edo era (1603-1867). It was even painted in the Ukiyoe, a Japanese woodblock print. This acclaimed sake is made with the underground water from the perpetual snows of Mt. Daisetsuzan in the severe, cold climate of Hokkaido, at the northernmost tip of Japan.
