For Special plan members
This is super rare sake produced with the unique method named Mochigome atugake yondanjikomi "もち米熱掛四段仕込み". Only a few breweries can use this method.
Refreshing aroma like young melon instantly transforms to be more fruity and richer in the mouth.
Attack is very rich and mild. Heavy but elegant sweetness surges over the tongue. It's much sweeter than normal sake, but very clear sourness makes its aftertaste crisp.
It's impossible to enjoy this unprecedented sweetness in other sake.
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
All the sake is produced by local farmers. To make taste roundish sake, we look deeply into the quality of rice. The most unique point is using sticky rice to produce sake. Sticky rice gives very rich unami and gentle sweetness on the taste of sake.
Use only crystal clear underground water comes from 2,000m high mountain. It's already been very pure water but we filter it completely to get rid of unnecessary components such as Magnesium, Calcium to make the taste of sake pure an gentle.
Stick with using only traditional tools and the skill inherited. Usually brewery produce shubo 3 by steps, however we do by 4 steps. It takes longer time, but taste becomes richer and contains more umami. In 2011, 4's generation came back to brewery and started to inject new way of thinking. The brewery is trying to mix the tradition and young fresh sense.
We have been sticking with family-run business for over 140 years. That is why we are not driven by other peoples' opinions and pursue the way we believe. We want to make sake which people drink our sake can feel our passion and wish.
