"Lovely fruity aroma and refreshing taste that is rounded out by a gentle sweetness and crisp finish."


Meaning “bubbles” in Japanese, AWA is produced through a secondary fermentation taking place inside the bottle, similar to traditional champagne. After being disgorged, it is perfectly clear, with small bubbles and fine aromas.

Tasting notes are bright and refreshing with an elegant sweetness.

The Hakkaisan Brewery

Hakkaisan Sake Brewery is located in Minami-Uonuma, an area known for producing high-quality Koshihikari rice. The sake is named after the sacred peak of Hakkaisan in the snowy Echigo Sanzan range. Having its roots in the Hakkaisan river system and the surrounding natural environment, it is a product of its clear water. Brewing season typically finds the town draped in snow. The philosophy of Hakkaisan Sake Brewery is based on three cornerstones: Dignity, Wide Supply, and Land.
