Mild fruity aroma with delicate notes of over-ripe cantaloupe, honeydew and honeysuckle. Round and smooth on the palate, with a medium, creamy body. Finishes long and smooth, with a hint of pear.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 85 points - A fragrant, fruity nose of lychee and Asian pear gives way to sweetly caramelized flavors of baked apple, custard and a hint of brioche. An unctuous, voluptuous sake. (May 2012)

A combination of fresh spring water, Yamada Nishiki rice (known as the ‘king of sake rice’), Gohyakumangoku rice milled to 50%, and the skill of the sake master, result in this classic example of a Fushimi style Junmai Daiginjo… Horin has a delicately fruity nose, its subtle flavors are well-balanced, and it is exceptionally smooth with a long clean finish.
Technical notes
Alc./Volume: 16.6% (720ml) 15.5% (300ml) Class: Junmai Daiginjo Sake Meter Value: +2 Sulfite and gluten free

Food pairing
Pairing Notes: Horin’s delicate aromatics complement lightly seasoned appetizers, salads, lobster and mild fish dishes, glazed pork, fresh fruit and lighter style fare. Serving Suggestions: Horin is an ultra-premium sake and is best enjoyed chilled.

Producer
Japan’s tradition of sake making began more than 2,000 years ago shortly after rice cultivation was introduced from China. Though the first few centuries yielded a beverage quite unlike that of today, years of experience perfected brewing techniques and increased sake’s overall appeal and popularity. In 1637, Gekkeikan’s founder, Jiemon Okura established his sake brewery in the town of Fushimi, a location well-known for its high quality of water. Access to the ideal ingredients combined with a convenient location enabled Okura and his successors’ business to thrive in the years that followed. In 1905, the brand name GEKKEIKAN (meaning ”crown of laurel”) was adopted as the company’s formal pledge to excellence. Through this commitment, the company became a true leader in the industry and pioneered a number of research and development efforts. The successful results of these endeavors have enabled Gekkeikan to become the nation’s one of the most popular brand. With a greater world wide appreciation of Japanese cuisine over the last decades, Gekkeikan sake has been experiencing a tremendous growth in popularity. To meet this increase in demand, Gekkeikan Sake (USA) , Inc. was established in Folsom, California in 1989. Today, Gekkeikan’s passion for pleasing the sake connoisseur remains unchanged. Dedicated just as the founder was over 370 years ago, both Gekkeikan Japan and Gekkeikan USA continue the tradition of both taste and quality.
