  SILK DELUXE JUNMAI, ICHISHIMA
Long one of the most prominent breweries in the Niigata region, Ichishima Shuzo has been owned and operatedby the Ichishima family since its founding in 1790. Silk in a bottle, this sake is light and energetic. Its mild sweetness is well-integrated with good acidity. Refreshing notes of honeydew melon and cucumber

DEWATSURU “KIMOTO” JUNMAI, AKITA SEISHU A great, full-bodied sake that reveals mellow taste and character. The higher acidity resulting from the time and labor-intensive kimoto brewing method. BTG $ 6.75 2oz                                  Retail $ 31.99 720 ml

HONJOZO, ICHISHIMA
This delightfully refined honjozo is rich and dry, with complex notes of spices and nuts. Just a hint a sea breeze causes this classic example of the Niigata Style
BTG $ 6.50 2oz                                  Retail $30.99 720 ml

CHONKAISAN JUNMAI DAIGINJO, TENJU SHUZO

From the first sip this is the one that makes you fall in love with Japanese premium sake!
Chokaisan Junmai DaiGinjŨ is matchless in its balance. Its floral nose hints of pear. Its palate is so refined that it makes a delightful aperitif or a wonderful accompaniment throughout your meal
