Hello pretty sake lady

Free flow of sake through out the night with The World Finest Sake, The Gekkeikan Sake.
Gekkeikan is widely well-known in Japan as a strong brand especially for regular 1.8l bottle for a long time. They are proud of this sake and its superior quality fits for various typical cuisine and can serve hot, warm and cold.

From left to right.
  • Traditional Sake / Kasen (180cl) Full bodied, rich taste and fine, mellow aroma.
  • Oukan (180cl) Drier & lighter tyoe of sake with comparatively reasonable price. Oukan means King's crown and with impressive black lable.
  • Josen Karakuchi (180cl) Premium type of sake for Gekkeikan.Most of the Japan sake manufacturer produce Karakuchi, but their Josen Karakuchi has specific character of dryness with full-bodied taste & fine aroma.
