Quantity: Qty:

A unique and secret ginjo, celebrated in the legends of sake brewing, is "Yonetsuru Steal-heart Daiginjo". That legend tells of ”The thief secretly stealed the unique and secret ginjo-shu that goes to sleep in the brewery and sold it to the market, so the best sake was known to the common people.” "Miyamanishiki" is a saké brewed and refined to 50% alcohol concentration in Takahata, Yamagata. The saké is defined by its distinctive aroma, which brings to mind green apples and pineapple, its gentle mouthfeel, as well as its rising, pleasing flavor. A strong seller since its release in the 1980s, it is highly regarded within Japan, and has thrice been awarded first place in the Ginjo saké division of the [[[全国日本酒コンテスト]]], which rates at-market sakés in Japan. Take advantage of the convenient mini bottle sizes available to try it out for yourself.

[About "Yonetsuru"]
The name "Yonetsuru" is derived from the bowing posture of ears of rice and the locally told tale "Crane's Return of a Favor." It incorporates a wish to create a sake that conveys a sense of gratitude and is imbued with sincerity. Under the concept of brewing that starts with rice-growing, this Japanese sake uses locally produced rice to offer a refreshing balance of scent, taste, and sharpness.
