Sparkling Sake "匠" John 氣泡純米大吟醸清酒"匠"

Unusual for sparkling sake, it is as clear as a diamond, its bubbles are consistent and powerful, creating an unique and masculine style of sparkling sake. It has an elegant and born-dry Junmai Daiginjo character. Sparkling "John" has won the highest award "Trophy" for Sparkling category in IWC 2016 Sake Challenge.
