Tasting Notes

This summer namazake from the Otokoyama brewery offers aromas of citrus fruit, bamboo, and brown rice. It shows softer and milder flavors on the palate. Very approachable.

Staff Pick Notes

Nama is always a good place to start with saké. Nama basically denotes that it is unpasteurized, therefore retaining some of the bright, fresh, and clean flavors. There are actually two points within the saké-making process where it can be pasteurized to make it more shelf stable. This nama gives you a glimpse of those flavors, and I am told that true nama, tasted in the spring in Japan, is heavenly.
