This elegant Juyondai Ryugetsu was released along with Soko (double rainbow), to display the complete dimension of a premium Junmai sake. Like Soko, the sake is obtained using the Shichitare Nijukkkan (七垂二十贯) method, which refers to only obtaining the finest sake (figuratively 7 drops) from 75kg of rice, a method unique to Juyondai. Light, restrained and elegant, Ryugetsu offers complex fruity notes and a silky texture. Perfectly balanced, with long-lasting and smooth finish.
