Honjozo “Beautiful Lily”

 Honjozo “Beautiful Lily”

Produced in Akita by the Saiya Brewery, makers of Yuki No Bosha, this is a favorite among locals of the region. Yuri is the name of the local area of Honjo-shi and Masamune is an old term for Japanese sake. This sake is mellow and rustic and has a firm structure, which makes it enjoyable at a range of temperatures, from chilled to warm. Its nutty and earthy notes are balanced by an underlying fruitiness and it complements grilled meats, stews and fish.
