ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
Yumedono, meaning Dream Palace, has been the name reserved for Masumi's very best sakes since the Meiji era. Yumedono is an octagonal structure built in 739 on the Horyuji temple complex as a monument to Prince Shotoku. The name was derived from a legend that a golden Buddha once appeared in Prince Shotoku's dreams. And what a dream this sake is! Brewed with the very best Yamada Nishiki rice and their own proprietary Masumi Number 7 yeast, each precious drop of this sake is filtered one drop at a time. Like the very best dreams, there is a contrasting interplay in its vivid and intense overall clarity, and its intentionally blurred umami that lingers through a long finish.
