Elegance Meets Versatility
Rich and beautifully balanced using the kimoto brewing method, Kimoto Extra Dry is excellent both heated and chilled.

Tasting Notes
Bold with a full body, noticeable acidity and a dry finish. Distinctly complex aroma with notes of mochi rice cake and toasted nuts lead to balanced and mature flavors of savory richness complemented by a nutty and light sweetness.

Aromatics
White grape and elements of cherry blossom tie in seamlessly to create a lush, creamy saké with a deliciously smooth finish.

Steak, Sushi, Seared Tuna and Pasta
