Price: 216,000 yen (1800 ml)
Currently considered to be the most expensive sake in Japan, it has become the finest sake because of the world’s first special container made out of pure titanium.
Of course, the sake in it is the best because it is the Shizuku sake from the North Sea.
Titanium containers are the best material for storing sake because they block light, and they have the property that they do not easily reach the inside even if there is a sudden temperature change outside, and they also have durability against damage and ultraviolet rays. It does not affect, and iron and manganese, which can be said to be the enemy of sake, do not elute.
It is a dream-like container for long-term storage of Daiginjo sake, and is therefore the highest-priced sake today.

Price: 42,000 yen (720ml)
Despite this sake, “Junmai Ginjo," which was brewed using ancient rice from 2000 years ago, this price is surprising.

The taste has a depth that can not be brewed with ordinary pure rice sake, and it seems that it has a width and lingering taste that seems to be layered with thin silk, so you definitely want to drink it at least once. It can be said that it is Japanese sake.
