From the esteemed 135 year old Nagai Sake Inc comes the refreshing Mizubasho Artist Series, an exciting trio of sake, each one unique, contemporary and elegant in its own way. Made especially with the modern woman in mind, they are an answer to the growing appetite of discerning female drinkers. The exquisite collection consists of three sakes, a sparkling sake (360ml), a still sake (720ml) and a dessert sake (300ml).

Inspired by the Mizubasho blossoms from Oze National Park, the largest highland marsh in Japan, the label of the series features the eponymous flower, delicately illustrated by the famous artist and actor, Tsurutaro Kataoka. And this Artist Series project is also contributing a portion of it's proceeds to the protection of the Oze natural ecosystem.

Rising from melting snow, Mizubasho blooms are a welcome sight in the beckoning spring, famous in Oze National Park in Gunma Prefecture.

Mizubasho Artist Series Floral Sparkling

The star of the Mizubasho Artist Series is the sparkling sake, so versatile that you can even pair it with spicy or meat dishes. Celebrate the tiny victories (and big ones too) with the sparkling sake, brewed with secondary fermentation in the bottle, producing the fine carbonation found in champagne produced in France. Featuring peach notes and a silky effervescence, this is the bubbly sake to pop to for date night or a Sunday brunch with the girls.
