One rank up for drinking alone! 4 recommended sake and glass pairings

For sake connoisseurs who are looking for new encounters, "I've drunk most of the sake...", Mirai Nihonshuten has carefully selected four advanced sakes with a particular taste. Let me do it.

This time, we will introduce not only Japanese sake, but also glasses that enhance the taste and aroma of each liquor. The taste and aroma of sake will be different when you drink it in a glass or in a sake cup. The Kimoto Glass glasses introduced this time are made considering what kind of sake they will be paired with. By adding a glass, you can upgrade your usual drinking at home! There is no doubt that you will enjoy it even more.
