This flowery fragrant saké with silky, well-balanced smoothness can be enjoyed chilled or at room temperature.
This saké pairs well with light and slightly salty dishes such as sashimi, edamame, tempura, sauteed vegetables, and steamed clams.
Pure saké made with rice polished between 51-60% and only the core junmai ingredients of rice, water, koji and yeast. A super-premium saké grade.
Hakutsuru is located in the famed Nada district of Kobe, a leading saké production area. The name Hakutsuru means “white crane”. The crane’s reserved character and graceful appearance along with the cultural association of seeing a crane in flight as an auspicious sign, makes the crane an ideal symbol to represent the excellent quality of Hakutsuru’s saké.
