This valuable limited edition sake has an annual production of 900 bottles and it is released only when the vintage is perfect.  This luxurious sake comes with it's own beautifully designed box.  The Diamon was awarded the gold medal in the Fine Sake competition. 

With an elegant, delicate, fruity, colourful Ginjo scent and a distinctive, deep juicy taste. The flavour of the rice combined with the elegant fragrance produces a voluminous mouthfeel. This fully-bodied, premium Sake represents the pinnacle of the Rokkon bold and distinctive style. The warmness of the mouth expands the umami flavour and the taste spreads to fill the mouth. Best enjoyed chilled.

This Sake is extracted using the Tobindori method, a luxurious and meticulous way of making Sake where sacks are filled with unrefined sakes that are hung, then hand-collecting the droplets that exude from the fabrics. This drip filtering method ensures that the full potential of Yamada Nishiki rice can be fully brought out. 

Deep and delicate fruity scents with a rich mouthfeel can be noticed upon the first sip. The full-bodied and bold taste will be expanded, filling the palate with the unique umami flavour. With such uniqueness, it is no wonder why this bottle from Rokkon is awarded a Gold Medal at the The Fine SAKE Award in Japan. This bottle is best enjoyed chilled.

Food pairings: steamed in a clay bottle, grilled sea urchin, grilled sillaginidae, pickled in miso- zuke, grilled chicken with salt. 

Serving temperature: 5 ℃ to normal temperature.
