If you enjoy your Sake on the sweeter, milder side, Gekkeikan's Nigori Sake with its more viscous texture, is a must-have. Nigori sake is distinguished by the presence of some of the solid rice particles that are employed in the sake brewing process. As a result, the sake is sweeter, mellower, and thicker than other variants.
