This is one of if not our first sake-poured-three-ways tasting at the new store. Enjoy a really tasty Junmai Ginjo that is served cold, room temperature, and warmed. (ABV: 16% / SMV: -5) Brewed from 100% Omachi rice, this Junmai Ginjo is fruity on the nose with the aroma of raisin and the gentle flavor of Muscat grapes. It strikes a harmonious balance between sweetness and acidity, offering a smooth mouthfeel.

"Yaegaki" was founded in Hyogo Prefecture in 1666. The name was inspired by a poem depicting Susanoo (the god of seas and storms), protecting his home and newly-wed wife with layered clouds, symbolized as eightfold fences, or Yaegaki. Yaegaki utilizes this name as a symbol of celebration and joy that sake can bring to people's lives.
