Shirakawago Sasanigori is a superb unfiltered sake made from Toyama Gohyakumangoku rice. Blended with Moromi (sake-mash), its mellow flavor and wealthy aroma is best enjoyed chilled or on the rocks.
Tasting Notes: Lightly cloudy with a consistent whitish hue. Aromas are delicate, hinting at newly blossomed flowers, cucumbers and fresh spring water. The flavor is almost sweet in the mouth, with a deep minerality and flowers on the finish. Easy to enjoy.
