Hiro Sake is expertly produced at the award-winning Taiyo Sake Brewery in Murakami, the northernmost town in the Niigata Prefecture. Inspired by the ancient recipe of Hiroemon Takeda, the renowned Samurai and sake connoisseur, Hiro is crafted by the brewery's renowned Toji (master brewer) using only specially polished rice from the Niigata Region. Hiro Junmai Ginjo offers a bright nose of banana, spicy pear custard and vanilla maple nut fudge which leads to a crisp, fruit-forward palate accented by savory notes of sweet potato bread and white mushroom. Enjoy chilled, over ice or in your favorite cocktail.

delicate nature of this product, we highly recommend upgrading to
overnight shipping if you live outside of our immediate delivery area
(New York City, Long Island, Southeastern NY, CT, DE, MD, NJ, Washington DC,
RI and Eastern PA); ideally, sake should be outside of refrigeration
