This sake is named after Hanako, or “Flower Maiden,” the most famous Japanese koi fish that lived for 226 years in the snowy, icy waters at the foot of Japan's Mt. Ontake. Snow Maiden's creamy texture befits its name and has a surprising yet pleasurable dryness for a nigori. The exceptional, vibrant aromas are a prelude to the ricey, fruity flavor combination that graces the palate with each sip.
Tozai is brewed in Kyoto Prefecture in the Kinki region.
Kizakura was founded in Kyoto in 1926 and is most famous for its company character depicted as the river monster kappa in TV commercials. The company motto is “Our first principle is quality.” This is the attitude that they have championed as they continue to strive to develop sake products for every aspect of their customers’ lives. Kizakura has become a nationally-reknowned brand and continues to produce innovative sake to reach wider audiences.
