Kanbara “Bride of the Fox”
The stuff of legends
This savory sake is inspired by local legends of Niigata’s annual fox-bride festival. Local lore tells of mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt.Kirin in the distant past, which are claimed to be the lanterns carried in the fox-bride procession. With a 50% polishing rate, this sake could technically qualify as a “daiginjo,” but the savory notes and food pairing versatility identify more with the style expected from “ginjo.”
