This sake is a honjozo grade from the prefecture Yamagata, located in northern Japan. This is a crystal clear, light, and fruity sake, with aromas of cherries and hints of fresh herbs. As a honjozo, it is lighter and smoother than other sake grades, making it a pleasant and enjoyable sake to sip and share. The Japanese "ban ryu" translates to "ten-thousand ways," referring to the various ways this sake can be enjoyed: it can be served chilled, at room temperature, or warm and can be accompanied with a range of foods or simply drunk on its own.
