    Very Interesting! Thank you Robert-Gilles!

    NYC Sake lovers really enjoy Wakatake Junmai Daiginjo. It is one of the most popular sakes here. Thanks for the overview on this one. It’s amazing the variety of sake that exists beyond our shores.
    take care

    Dear Tim!
    This particularly sake is probably their most famous brew, but certainly not the best!
    Wit till you come to Shizuoka!
