Toukun "A Tale of Dreams and Illusions"
Carefully brewed with low-temperature moromi fermentation, this ginjo is
delicious even when warmed, with a suppressed ginjo aroma. The nose screams 'aged sake' but it drinks surprisingly light and clean, with lots of caramel, vanilla, and a touch of slate minerality in the clean finish.
The label was designed by the late film director Akira Kurosawa, and
is a storyboard for the movie "Ran".

They have devoted themselves to sake brewing, proud of their 190-year history and tradition, under conditions suitable for sake brewing, such as the Tone River's ferry service, high-quality early-baked rice from the waterfront area, and high-quality water.
