Kokuryu labels resound with deep flavour, but what makes them unique is their overall finesse. Sakes with big taste profiles can sometimes be overbearing and lacking in clarity. Kokuryu skillfully avoids this, bringing together rich flavour and delicate balance in a unique expression of the sake-maker’s art.
