Cult brewer Yamamoto is one man who's shaking things up in Akita. Part of "The Next Five" - a band of 5 Akita brewers whose aim is to create a new sake scene for today's younger generation. Yamamoto sake is very unique, refreshing, aromatic and invigorating.Yamamoto san has jumped the shark by incorporating 5 Akita rice varieties and 5 Akita yeasts in one bottle of Junmai Daiginjo.
This sake is all about the palate but a subtle nose of apple, pear and grapefruit will get the juices flowing. A super silky textured sake with white peach, nashi pear, cherry, light jersey caramel, candy apple, star anise and a satisfying finish. Distinctively Yamamoto with a high-five to Aramasa with the inclusion of Number 6 yeast
