One of sake’s great benefits are the apparent inability to leave you with a hangover. That’s a plus if there ever was one. Not so much with other liqueurs. TY KU takes that blend by making the actual liqueur with sake which successfully blends a high alcohol content with healthy benefits such as Asian pears, pomegranates, herbs, ginseng, and damania.
For more information on TY KU, take a look at their site.
What this means to you: Taste, no hangover, slight aphrodisiac, and one helluva cool bottle. We dig it.
