The nose on this Tokyo-made Junmai is fresh and sharp, with notes of kaffir lime, cereal, green apple and watermelon pickle. 

As an extra dry sake, I recommend serving chilled and enjoying the sake's evolution as it warms up to room temperature, which brings out the savory qualities and richer mouthfeel. Ideal for fatty, sweet-savory and rich cuisine, particularly in the cooler months of the year.

Sawanoi's brewery is located deep inside the valleys along the western side of Tokyo prefecture.  Accordingly, the heavily sloped land makes it impossible to drill a well vertically.  Sawanoi's source for its water is a well that was drilled horizontally into the side of a mountain.  The water sourced from this unique well generally takes 7-8 years to filter through the mountain rock.
