Sake is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages produced, dating back beyond recorded history. There is an art to making Sake and over the years many breweries have perfected the practice. Billy Melnyk is a new producer and has spent 12 years of his life working with Bacardi and Grey Goose before venturing out to develop a premium sake that would remain authentic to the heritage while appealing more to a western market. SOTO is a filtered sake that celebrates nature in the simpliest form. With a glass bottle wrapped in a minimal black and white label,  Melnyk keeps the Japanese design aesthetic alive while putting his own spin to it. A circle has been cut through the label giving consumers a visual of the beverage's pureness. SOTO is gluten free and contains no preservatives or additives.
