Brewed in the northern-most prefecture in Japan, Iwate is famous for its Nanbu style of sake brewing. Its brutal winters and abundant nature produce some of the most pristine waters in Japan. This water in turn produces a beautiful, crystal - clear Nanbu brew. Creamy, lovely and soft, this sake is absolutely remarkable. A bit of residual sugar up front with the prettiest, clean, textured finish that lasts for days. This is sake at its best. Easy to drink and simple, yet complex and rebellious this is my number one sake of the year...make that number one sake ever tasted.
