Named "288 Nights" for the time the current head brewer, Uno san, first spent relearning about sake making from the previous head brewer, Takakura san.
A pure rice Ginjo sake that actually qualifies as a Daiginjo with 50% rice polishing, made with Gohyakumangoku sake rice from Niigata, with a gentle apple aroma and refreshing taste. Clean and neat, but the flavours get drawn out with each sip.
