[11/17 Beaujolais lifted] “Sake” that is just like wine
“Beaujolais Nouveau” becomes a hot topic every November. It is produced in the Beaujolais region in the southern Burgundy region of France, and refers to red wine made from a variety of grapes called ``Gamay''.
Beaujolais Nouveau is released on the third Thursday of November every year. In 2022, it is November 17th.
Before the ban on sake is lifted, we would like to introduce aged sake with a taste that will give you the illusion that it is wine .

For those who purchased from Yahoo Shopping
I gave it to my business partner's president as a birthday present. He is usually a wine drinker, and I have given him wine and champagne every year, but each year they have been the same, so this year was a vintage of Japanese sake, and since I didn't know much about it and it was unusual, I decided to give it to him as a gift. Great success! Although it was Japanese sake, it had the aroma and flavor of wine or brandy and seemed to be very delicious , so I received a phone call right away and was even more pleased than I expected. I'm very happy that you are so happy.
Please enjoy the taste of aged old sake, which is a Western-like sake that is completely different from new sake.
