As of April 2014, Tokusen has undergone a dramatic image re-make to become a lighter and more fragrant sake. Enjoy it chilled or gently warmed.
｛ Master brewer's comments ｝
We've made this new Tokusen more fragrant and lighter. Even though it is still in the standard category, it has a ginjo-like delicacy of character. While we're sorry to see the old Tokusen go, we know you'll like this lighter, fresher version.
｛ Food pairing suggestions ｝
Standard Japanese comfort food like grilled fish, yakitori, teriyaki, sukiyaki, nabe hotpots.
