Junmai Daiginjo Shizukudori
This sake is made by hanging the fermented sake mash (moromi) in a cloth bag, and carefully collecting the juice which drips freely under gravity, without any pressing. The Yamada Nishiki rice is polished away so that only 40% of the grain remains and is brewed slowly at a low temperature. The result is a brew that takes time and effort to perfect.
This sake has a silky soft texture, a full and deep flavour and an elegant, jewel-like aroma. Youthful yet full of dignity, this is our brewery’s most prized Junmai Daiginjo sake. It was chosen as the toast of the 42nd G7 Summit, held in Ise-shima in 2016.
