Mellows the soul

Kikusui Sake Company’s 130 years of experience culminate in this refined, triumphant sake. Kuramitsu is crafted from rice that’s been delicately milled to an impressive 23% of its original size. The heady, rice aroma tantalizes the senses before the first, fascinating sip. Mellow, melon tones smooth out the palate, releasing tension, then continues to soothe through every following glass. To taste truly refined sake, taste Kuramitsu.

Kikusui Brewing Company

Kikusui Brewing Company

Niigata Prefecture

With 130 years of history on their shoulders, the Kikusui Sake Company of Niigata prefecture built themselves up from the bottom. The name "Kikusui" is a reference to a Noh theatre play, wherein the dew (Sui) from the petals of chrysanthemums (Kiku) grant eternal life. In 2004 they established the Kikusui Sake Research Institute in an effort to both raise the bar on the quality of their offerings and wrestle with concepts such as enjoyment of sake, and sake culture. They are proud to produce "Funaguchi" - Japan's first commercially available Nama (unpasteurized) sake.
