Makes your heart smile

Nanbu Bijin “Daiginjo” was given a gold medal in the “sake for wine glasses” category. So what’s the secret? The brewers use a special grade of Ginotome rice that is only found in Ninohe city, Iwate Prefecture. Then they polish it down by a whole 50%. What’s left is brewed with heart and soul so that you can enjoy a sake with perfectly matched umami and sweetness. One whiff will bring a grin to your face, and one taste will bring a smile to your heart. For the full effect serve this sake cold in a thin wine glass, then sip like a champion.

Nanbu Bijin

Nanbu Bijin

Iwate Prefecture

The brewery was established in 1902, and the Nanbu Bijin brand name came to be in 1951. The Iwate area used to be called Nanbu (South), and is a place rich with nature, abundant water and fertile soil. In Japan, most breweries of the time made quite rough, inelegant, sweet sake, but this brewery wanted to make clean & beautiful sake like a fair southern maiden. Hence, the name Nanbu Bijin, or Southern Beauty.
