WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL ?
This is one of the world’s first Franco-Japanese sake.
Yeah, you heard that right, Franco Japanese sake. The tandem creation of French cellar master Regis Camus and the team at Konishi, HeavenSake Junmai 12 delivers a nutty nose with a unique salted caramel undertone.
The light body is filled with savory goodness and leaves with a crisp finish. The 12 in the name comes from the fact that this sake has a lower alcohol content of 12%, but still leaves you uplifted.
AMAZING FOOD PAIRINGS
Our Junmai 12 pairs amazingly with sea food such as ceviche, raw oysters, tuna tartare, poached fish, shrimp cocktails, sashimi.
But also more modern pairings such as Margherita pizza, burgers, New York strip steaks should definitely be explored by you.
