Kaze no Mori Akitsuho Junmai

As with apples in cider, hops in beer and grapes in wine, the type of rice used in creating sake has a profound effect on the finished product. Kazenomori uses locally grown Akitsuho rice that imparts spicy sweet ginger notes to this smooth-sipping sake. Store this booze in the fridge and be mindful when opening – it’s a feisty brew and the bottle caps have a tendency to pop like firecrackers when released
