Asahi Shuzo Dassai "50" Junmai Daiginjo Nigori Sake (300ml)

Possibly the sexiest Nigori we have ever tasted. You don't usually see Nigori at a Ginjo level! This is sleek and delightfully light. There is a touch of carbonation, which helps lift the sweetness of the rice. Great fruity notes and a very clean style for a creamy sake. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood)

Kokuryu "Nine Headed Dragon" Junmai Sake 720ml

The 500 Mangoku varietal of rice is difficult to use but when handled properly can be devastatingly intriguing.
