This is plum sake blended with low-alcohol undiluted junmai “genshu“ made with local Toyonishiki rice. Himezen only uses hand-picked, local, yellow-ripe plums from Miyagi prefecture, allowing for unique, elegant aromas and refreshing acidity. It’s also a platinum award winner at the 2018 London Sake Challenge. Serve chilled with ice, soda or even freeze it to serve as sorbet.
Ichinokura is made in
Thirty miles north of Sendai in Miyagi prefecture, Ichinokura started in 1973 by combining four local premium sake breweries. Their policy hasn’t changed since its inception that all brewing processes must be done by hand. Sake brewing requires all human senses and thephysical involvement of touching, tasting and smelling in the production; they believe this is the only way to brew high quality sake. Making the best sake with a new start was undoubtedly a challenge, but they’ve succeeded in creating multiple sensational products over the years and have become one of the best known breweries in Japan, maintaining a decades-long history of export as well.
