Drink this pleasantly nutty junmai ginjo sake

Kaetsu Kanbara Bride of the Fox is a pleasantly nutty junmai ginjo sake with a crisp finish that makes it an excellent accompaniment to just about any meal. We first tried it at Sado and loved how it balanced deliciously fatty tuna and the richer ingredients in sushi rolls. There’s no need to be a sushi chef to enjoy it at home; it would be fabulous served with a ripe cheese, steak or even a frozen pizza.
