Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Crystal clear in color. Pungent aromas of white flowers are rich and seductive. In the mouth, flavors are deep with notes of ripe honeydew, lillies and mineral water. Flavors continue to develop on the palate after each sip.” (Jun 2013)

|Inspired by the ancient recipe of Hiroemon Takeda, the renowned Samurai and Japanese Sake connoisseur, Hiro is crafted by our own Toji (Master Brewer) using only specially polished rice from the Murakami plain in the Niigata Region.
|Hiro Sake is a world class; hand crafted Japanese Sake, created using Japanese expertise with an uncompromising approach to quality. The golden rice fields together with the water from the subterranean river beds, skirting the Miomote river in Murakami, Niigata prefecture, are the perfect setting for brewing our
super-premium Japanese Sake. Our Toji or Sake Master has created an exquisite brew that bridges the heritage of the past with today’s modern drinking patterns. Although Japanese Sake is thought of as the traditional rice “wine” of Japan, the fermentation process used to produce Japanese Sake more closely resembles beer production.
