Ippongi Ginkoubai - Japanese Plum Sake

 Have you ever tried a premium Japanese plum sake? No? Then what are you waiting for? If you like sweet wines and beers, or, if you need something that pairs perfectly with Teriyaki or Grilled Fish--then this awesome brew is for you. Rich, smooth, well-balanced, yet sweet with a quick tart taste that smartly cleans your palate for the next bite of food. Think green apples, Japanese plum (ever try one? soooo good!) whip cream, and silk if it had a taste. Not like your average plum sakes which often have a heavy taste--this sake is light as a feather.
