Gekkeikan’s long-standing flagship premium brand, Horin is crafted with utmost care and precision. Two sake rice varieties, Yamada Nishiki — also known as the “king” of sake rice varieties — and Gohyakumangoku, are expertly blended during the brewing process to create this luxurious Junmai Daiginjo sake with a beautiful fruity nose. Its subtle flavors are well-balanced, and it is exceptionally smooth with a long, clean finish. Best served in a wine glass to appreciate the green apple, melon, and pear aromas.
