The Miyanoyuki Honjōzo (宮の雪 本醸造酒) is pleasantly mild, with a smooth mouthfeel, and has a light, yet robust taste with a perfect balance. It has a gorgeous aroma and the original mellow taste of rice. Miya no Yuki is named after the Ise Jingū, Miya was taken from the owner's family name, and yuki (雪, snow) from the mountains of the Suzuka range. Miya no Yuki is made from pure yeast and handmade kōji and is carefully fermented at low temperatures. It has a rich aroma, sweetness and a slight acidity spreading in the mouth.

A nose of green and dried fruits. Tanrei (mild and light), dry with a tingle of sweetness. Spicy finish that melts away on your palate. This is kanzake (燗酒), sake that can be consumed warm. We had it at room temperature, and it was exquisite.
