Frequently featured at state dinners for foreign dignitaries, ""Bon"" hails from Fukui Prefecture. Originally offered under the ""Gin no Tsubasa"" label in commemoration of its having been served at a state dinner during President Bill Clinton's 1996 visit to Japan, it was renamed ""Nihon no Tsubasa (Wing of Japan)"" after having won a number of awards representing Japan in overseas competitions. The distinctly refreshing ginjo aroma is gentle and smooth, sturdy enough to stand up to butter and cheese-based dishes yet with a depth of flavor that distinguishes it completely from other merely ""pretty"" daiginjo labels.
This sake offers both a strength reminiscent of an unprocessed sake, and an unsurpassed level of refinement."
