- 'This is a soft-textured, savoury treat from the brewery of Mr Iwao Niizawa, the youngest master sake brewer in history. The folks at Niizawa are experts at crafting high-quality dry sakes, and the Tokubetsu Junmai (special dry) is one of their finest. Hugely inviting notes of pineapple and pears sign off with a slick, satisfying, earthy finish.' - Richard Hood, The Independent, May 2017
