Junmai Ginjo sake crafted by Chiyomusubi sake brewery in Tottori prefecture (which has been making sake since 1865). Tottori Prefecture is famed all over Japan for a manga called 'Gegege no Kitaroo', a story featuring all kinds of ghosts. This little cup features the story's hero, Medama Oyaji (One Eye Old Man). Like the best of us, Oyaji enjoys his baths inside a ramen bowl. 'Gokuraku Oyaji' means 'old man having a great time!'

You, too, can have a great time with this pure rice sake. Made with Kyoryokumai rice polished to 50%, it has a mild nose of minerals and sugar cane, which opens up to a well balanced palate with hints of confection, anise and five spice. Clean, crisp layers of silkiness speak to white wine drinkers. Aperitif perfection.
