Yamamoto Midnight Blue (720ml) 山本ミッドナイトブルー

$70.00

An alluring and gorgeous bouquet courtesy of the R-5 sake yeast. The Midnight Blue is a masterful Genshu with an end-point ABV of just 16%. The Akita R-5 yeast was developed through a collaborative effort by Akita brewers and Yamamoto was the first to showcase the yeast.

Yamamoto Brewery 山本酒造店

Among the aspects which make Yamamoto sake extraordinary are the intrepid and unusual products such as the Yamamoto Wine, a sake made with a combination of sake and chardonnay yeasts and matured in oak barrels and the Yamamoto Royal Flush, a sake made with five separate sake rice varieties and five separate yeasts, culminating in brews which are out of the box and captivating. Above all, Yamamoto sake is wonderfully easy drinking and vibrantly fresh tasting.
