JoTo Huchu Watari Bune Ferry Boat "55" Ibaraki Junmai Ginjo Sake 720ml

Yamada Shoten "Everlasting Roots" Tokubetsu Junmai Sake 900ml

This is truly old school brewery from Gifu prefecture was founded in 1868. They like to say "Nothing has changed from the beginning."

It does especially well warm (not hot, but warm) with rich shellfish like lobster, but can go with grilled proteins if served chilled.
