Fukucho “Forgotten Fortune”
A playful bite of acidity to make you blush
Miho revived Hattanso rice, an extinct heirloom breed, by devoting over 10 years of her life to learning how to grow it and brew with it. Female brewery owner and Toji, Miho Imada, mills the rice for this sake less than most junmai because she believes it results in the best expression of rice flavor, balance, and complexity.
