Bright and refreshing, this sake is the perfect choice for daytime drinking and is the brewery employees’ drink of choice. The juniper botanicals and cucumber notes make it the perfect gin lover’s sake. It is named after the brewery founder who fought many battles near the ruins of Takatenjin Castle. It is very close to being a Ginjo but reined in by flavors and aromas to allow more easy drinking.
Takatenjin Sword of the Sun Tokubetsu Honjozo has aromas of cucumber, Asian pear, and botanicals evocative of floral styles of gin. Bright, dry, and refreshing.
Try it with grilled Sriracha shrimp, roasted beets, and whole-grain salads.
