Celebrate with a sparkle

If you find yourself craving a bubbly drink that isn’t too sweet then look no further. AWA Sparkling sake graces your senses with a fine ginjo scent and a surprisingly distinct umami aftertaste. This sake uses a secondary fermentation process to produce those buoyant bubbles that deliver bursts of flavor to your palette. While many bubbly drinks, like champagne, add sugar after filtering, Nanbu Bijin AWA lets the sake remain true to itself. This prevents the sake from being overly sweet and lets the umami and dry qualities shine through.

Nanbu Bijin

Nanbu Bijin

Iwate Prefecture

The brewery was established in 1902, and the Nanbu Bijin brand name came to be in 1951. The Iwate area used to be called Nanbu (South), and is a place rich with nature, abundant water and fertile soil. In Japan, most breweries of the time made quite rough, inelegant, sweet sake, but this brewery wanted to make clean & beautiful sake like a fair southern maiden. Hence, the name Nanbu Bijin, or Southern Beauty.
