For Melbourne, Australia based founders Yuta and Shar Kobayashi, Tōji Sake was designed especially for the Australian palate.

Acknowledging that sake has an acquired taste, the founders travelled throughout Japan studying (and tasting) a lot of sake from respected brewmasters and found a way to combine their love of traditional Japanese culture with the contemporary Melbourne food scene. The result is Tōji, a premium sake which bridged the gap between the classic Japanese drink and the modern Australian palate.

The price? $32 or available at Australian restaurants.
