Sake from Yamatogawa distillery

I like Japanese sake (rice wine) and this one is very good, is from Yamatogawa distillery in Kitakata, Fukushima prefecture, just in front of my mother in law house, how convenient! Essential ingredients for sake are rice and wother, tah mean, good rice and good water, in Kitakata both are very good and the result is finest sake from this area. Sake comes in a variety of textures and degree of dyness or sweetness, I love slightly sweet sake, but ,of course, need to consider the food to accompany, to match. Tehere is nigori sake too, raw, not filtered sake, very good indeed, it looks not clear, with a milky looks, try to believe.
