Flavor & fragrance profile

Master brewer's comments

We created Nanago (number seven) to pay hommage to the number seven yeast that was discovered at Masumi. The Yamahai style gives Nanago its firm acidity, which helps bring its full flavor to a clean finish. It's a sake you can drink all night without getting tired of.
