- OKUHARIMA YAMAHAI YAMADANISHIKI 80 春待ちこがれて
For Special plan members
Has the rich scent which reminds of young banana. Contrary to this elegant aroma not like Yamahai, very thick and condensed umami jump into the tongue.
With specially designing the Koji, the taste of this label turns very rich and luscious. But, it’s not just sweet. The sweetness is covered with sourness which is unique feature of sake made with Yamahai method. Right after sweet and sour taste, refreshing bitterness clear the mouth, so that its aftertaste is dry and clean.
Please enjoy the thick and various layers of taste only which this brewery can produce with using the finest Yamadanishiki and ancient Yamahai method.
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.
