SAKE

Don’t like sakes that are too sweet? Try the Kamoitsuha from Tago- Honke brewery in the green bottle, it’s a Tsuyama dai ginjo that’s known to be dry. The one in brown is the Abanokaze from Nambashuzo brewery. This fruity and rich junmai-shu is made in Aba, using regular rice as it’s too cold there to grow sake rice.
