Garyubai Gohyak Junmai Ginjo 0.72 L
The Garyubai sake series(“garyu” stands for a sleeping dragon, “bai” means ume fruit) was named after the ume tree believed to have been planted by Tokugawa Ieyasu himself in a temple near Sanwa Brewery.
Garyubai is a premium sake brewed with traditional techniques of the renowned Nanbu-Toji sake masters. For Gohyakumangoku, after fermenting our delicious rice we hang the moromi-filled bags (sake mash) to drip the sake into flask-shaped glass containers for slow maturation. This natural yet labor-intensive and time-consuming method allows for the most delicious taste and bouquet.
