The Best Sake Ranking in Japan
Japanese sake dassaiNo.1 獺祭 Gassai
from Yamaguchi Prefecture
Review:  The moment you put your mouth on glass, a gorgeous scent tickles your nose. A soft mellowness, a melon-like sweet flavor, after which comes a crisp spice through the nose, then refreshingly leaves the mouth. It tastes different every time you drink it.

Those who say “I don’t normally drink sake” or “I can’t tell sakes apart” were astonished and said “this is delicious.”

Japanese sakeNo.2 十四代 Jyuyondai
from Yamagata Prefecture
