KATSUYAMA KEN JUNMAI GINJO 720ml
Brewery: KATSUYAMA SHUZO
The Gold medal winner of the 2016 International Wine Collection (IWC) and the overall "Champion Saké" at the 2019 IWC, awards Katsuyama Ken as the world’s best sake in all categories out of 432 participating breweries worldwide and 1,500 entries.
This Junmai Ginjo is brewed by the famous Katsuyama brewery, which harnesses three centuries of brewing tradition and is renowned for their absolute focus to refinement with each bottle. A wonderfully luxurious bottle of saké, full of umami and depth. This elegant saké also features a gentle, clean nose with red apple and floral elements. It has a smooth and silky drinkability, with a fresh and juicy flavour that expands into a soft and supple fullness. The superb balance of slightly dry and mild acid tastes and well-rounded aftertaste make it an excellent pairing for meals prepared to bring out the best in carefully selected ingredients.
