Intro to Sake Set B

Hakutsuru Brewery Yaegaki Brewery

This introductory set consists of two excellent sakes that showcases the diversity within sake. Drinking a junmai and a junmai ginjo side-by-side is the best way to experience the wide breadth of tasting notes that sake has to offer.

Bottle 1 - Yaegaki Select Junmai Ginjo

Brewed with Omachi rice, this junmai ginjo is fruity on the nose with the aroma of raisin and the gentle flavor of muscat grapes. 

Bottle 2 - Hakutsuru Excellent Junmai

It's called "Excellent" for a reason-because it is! Let's not beat around the bush: this is one of the best value sakes out there. It's the sake that everyone will like: Goldilocks, Papa, Mama, AND Baby bear (Just to be clear, Baby in sake experience, not age!) You can enjoy this one chilled in the summer and warmed in the winter, and pairs with just about anything. It may not be fancy and jazzy, but it's the most solid sake that you can rely on at all times. If you're looking for another analogy-in a high school rom-com, this is not the super hot quarterback that ends up being a douche in the end, but the nerdy best friend that stood by you the entire time. A true keeper.
