Suishin Junmai “Drunken Heart” – a robust sake full of sweetness wrapped by rich, fresh acidity and is smooth and light on the palate;
Mizunoshirabe Junmai Ginjo “Sound of Water” – a Kyoto aake that is light and creamy, and has a really superb nose filled with hints of peaches, grapes, and persimmons with an undercurrent of minerals and green grasses.
