Hakutsuru White is a low-alcohol junmai sake brewed by the Hakutsuru House founded in 1743 near the city of Nada in the Hyogo region.
Composed of water, rice and koji, this sake is made with a variety of japonica round rice specially developed and cultivated by the brewery from which it takes its name: Hakutsuru Nishiki. Its round and fruity profile reveals notes of apple and pear on the nose, then a hint of acidity with a touch of lime on the palate.
Hakutsuru White is a refreshing sake to be enjoyed as an aperitif or with nutty cheeses such as Gouda or Gruyere.

Brewery Hakutsuru Sake
Founded in 1743 in Kobe, in the Nada district, by Jihei Kano, Hakutsuru is a historic house of sake and one of the leading brands in Japan. The brewery is distinguished by its history but also by a complete mastery of the entire production chain, from the cultivation of rice to the production of sake.
Hakutsuru has thus designed its own variant of Nishiki rice, grown in Tamba-Sasayama in Hyōgo prefecture. With its 275 years of experience, Hakutsuru has managed to strike a balance between artisanal production and volume since the brand is very present in Japan but is also a major export player with distribution of its products in more than 55 countries.
If sake remains its flagship product, the Hakutsuru house has also developed its offer of other Japanese alcohols such as gin, umeshu or, more recently, whisky with the single malt Tancho.
