Take a taste of scientific endeavor! Sakamai Kikusui Genshu is made with Kikusui rice, which almost went extinct around 1945. Fortunately, brewers at Kikusui brought the famed rice back from the brink using the only 25 remaining rice grains. What a great thanks we owe them! Without their hard work we would never revel in the undiluted pleasures this sake offers. With a scent like fresh cut apples and a mature, mellow flavor, Sakamai Kikusui Genshu is the perfect blast from the past.
Kikusui is brewed in Hokuriku region.
