Namazake Junmai Ginjo “Glorious Mt. Fuji”
This sake is available all year-round. Nothing is wasted, each unconsumed sample bottle gets put to good use by after work research. It is a year-round namazake, meaning that you do not need to wait until the spring to get it. The brewery brews it, stores it at 41 degrees Fahrenheit and ships out as needed.
The Joy of Sake
Delicate notes of green apple on the nose; soft and melting on the palate; notes of green apple and candied sugar; finishes with a delicate acidity.
Serve lightly chilled as an apéritif or with high-end omakase or kaiseki.

points of distinction
- This sake is a wonderful representation of the Yamagata ginjo style.
- Unlike most namazake, or unpasteurized sake, which are sold seasonally, this namazake is stored chilled and available year-round.
The Kato’s named their sake “Eiko Fuji,” or “Glorious Mount Fuji” in honor of Japan’s most beloved symbol.
