Joto Sake Daiginjo “The One with the Clocks”

It’s hard to miss this sake when you see it on shelves, because its rows and rows of clocks remind you…it’s time to drink sake! This specific Joto Sake is Daiginjo grade, which is the highest level of quality. To qualify as a daiginjo, the rice must be polished to 50% or less of its original size; in other words, sake brewers will have to discard at least half of the raw ingredients they started with. This makes Joto Sake Daiginjo “The One with the Clocks” elegant, refined, and perfectly delicious when chilled.
