Plum wine with aged sake

Premium plum wine brewed with 3-year aged sake. The sake is brewed in traditional Kimoto style that involves intense manual labor work to mix the rice mash for delicate flavors. With 3-year aging, the sake takes on a bit of nectar-like sweetness and texture. And soaking and resting high-quality plum in this aged sake creates these pronouced rich flavors.

Sawanotsuru started as a rice dealer, but in 1717 they began brewing sake as a side business. This is why their logo has the ※ mark, which is derived from the kanji for rice. Now in its 15th generation, Sawanotsuru is still all about holding rice in high regard, as seen in their enduring commitment to producing delicious junmai sake. When it comes to water, Sawanotsuru uses the hard water that springs from the granite layers of Mount Rokko. This water has good amounts of phosphorus and potassium, which results in sake with a clean finish.
