Looking around the city, beautiful illuminations are shining, cheerful music is playing in storefronts, and it is the season to feel the arrival of Christmas.
At this time of year, many people are thinking about Christmas presents to give to their loved ones.
Why not give the gift of alcohol as a gift that is a little different from last year?
Colorful vintage sake is packed in beautiful slender bottles.
The taste is completely different from the "sake" I've had before. It has a complex flavor reminiscent of Western liquor.
During the gorgeous Christmas season, send a sparkling golden ``GOLD'' to your loved ones.
When you open the luxurious black box, what catches your eye is a jewel-like vintage sake wrapped in satin. Even before you pour it into the glass, your heart will be excited by its beauty.
〈Carefully selected aged sake recognized by the world〉
You'll be amazed not only by its appearance, but also by the flavor that comes out because it's been aged for over 10 years. Each brand has a flavor that is recognized by sommeliers around the world.
In 2011, three brands of "GOLD" won gold medals at the Feminalise World Wine Competition 2011 held in Paris, France. This competition has world-class female sommeliers and female chefs serving as judges, and is said to be one of the world's most well-known competitions, ranking among the top five in France, the home of wine.
