This sake is the creation of legendary brewer Mr. Masahiko Fuijo. He brings his harmonious precision to play with this sake’s highly polished rice.When the rice mash is ready for pressing after fermentation, the brewers collect the drops from the rice bags only using gravity. Though this process takes longer, the brewers’ patience pays off with Asabiraki Junmai Daiginjo Sake’s layered aroma and nuanced umami flavor.
Asabiraki is made in
Founded by a seventh-generation samurai turned merchant in 1871, the name Asabiraki comes from an ancient poem depicting an early morning boat journey symbolizing a new start. Their innumerable accolades are credited to Masahiko Fujio, their brewmaster since 1984. Preserving the skills of the Nanbu Toji Guild rooted in the region known for “pretty” sake with no off-flavors, his motto is “Always stick to the basics.” He has said, “Sake brewing is agriculture. We must not spare time and effort.” He’s also helped develop the prefectural sake rice called Ginginga, which is featured in some of Asabiraki’s products.
