Katafune Ginjo Genshu
This delightful brew boasts an intense floral aroma and provides a balanced flavor of fruit and body with a pleasurable tart ending, reminiscent of a crisp and juicy green apple. Katafune Ginjo Genshu has been honored with Japan's highest distinction for sake on two separate occasions. Takeda San's boundless enthusiasm and the exceptional quality of Niigata's water supply form the basis of a remarkably ardent and aromatic sake. This beverage is best appreciated in a wide, Burgundy-style wine glass in order to take full advantage of the fragrance and texture.
Sake Social, in partnership with JETRO [Japanese External Trade Organziation], is deeply committed to the continued promotion of Japanese sake, shochu, and related goods. Through education and shared knowledge, we encourage novice and expert consumers to try, enjoy, and share Japanese sake and shochu.
