Mr. Kenichiro Ikeda of Chiyonohikari Sake Brewery said, “The Japanese sake industry is still in a bad state due to the influence of COVID-19. I think that it is impossible to have a large number of drinking parties and that there are few opportunities to drink high-class sake. Therefore, we decided to sell special products so that people could feel free to enjoy high-class sake and realize again that “Sake is delicious!”. Please take this opportunity to try it! “
“Chiyonohikari Banshaku Daiginjo” is limited to 2,700 bottles and will be on sale from Thursday, June 10th at liquor stores in the Joetsu Myoko area.
