The pinnacle of Ultra Premium Sake, TY KU Sake White is a limited edition special designation Junmai Daiginjo representing the top 1% of all sake in the world. Handcrafted in Yamagata, Japan from the best sake rice in the world and polished so only 40% of the grain remains, leaving only the absolute purest portion. TY KU Sake White was voted the Best Sake in the World.


Exceptionally refined & smooth, uniting floral notes with hints of banana and vanilla. At once delicate, yet rich, supple & full bodied; hints of spice permeate. Captivates the palate on the finish with complex layers of soft citrus fruit. Enjoy like a fine white wine, slightly chilled in a wine glass. Refrigerate after opening and for best taste, enjoy soon thereafter.

TY KU Sake White is hand crafted in small batches at the legendary Matsuyama Shuzo Brewery in the world famous Yamagata Prefecture of Japan. With over 150 years and 5 generations of sake brewing experience, Matsuyama Shuzo is Japan's most awarded brewery over the last 20 years.
