It's sour and rich, full body type sake.
Its liquid is colored yellow and looks very condensed. As soon as opening the bottle, fruity aroma like fresh banana spreads in the air.
Very mellow texture proves its strong and rich sweetness and umami. Due to maturing for more than half year, the taste becomes roundish, however, its sourness insist the uniqueness of this label. The aftertaste is little smoky and bitter.
Thanks to this complexity, its taste is totally changed by drinking temperature.
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
We basically make use of rice produced in our hometown, since Hyogo produces high-quality brewery rice like Yamadanishiki. Especially, the grain of local brand "Yumenishiki" is larger than the others, and we are able to brew sake stably even in harsh nature.
90% of our homeground is covered with forest, so that we can utilize very rich natural resources for brewing. Especially, the water wells up is very clean and transparent.
We only produce 100% natural Junmai style sake. For us, it's natural to use only rice and water for brewing, however, natural brewing process is another story for the other breweries. We understand the nature of my hometown and just support nature to brew sake. That's 100% natural Junmai style sake we believe. Filtering of sake, which most of brewery conduct, is out of question.
A sign is hung in the center of brewery. "Nothing better than handmade" is written in the sign. That is the word of 3rd generation. We've been committing to the slogan for more than 100 years.
