Unpasteurized/undiluted sake with fresh and powerful flavors

Seasonal and limited supply release: November-March Unpasteurized/undiluted sake. Very fresh and powerful taste with rice flavor. This Jumai is made true to tradition and brewed only during the coldest months. The result? A well structured, clean sake that is simultaneously dry and rich. With a refreshing hint of cucumber, you’d never guess this brew has a powerful 18% ABV. When poured into a glass, the sake is a mellow gold, and can be warmed to bring out more sweetness. Make a toast to tradition and the future next time you drink Kagatobi Gokkan Junmai. Keep it in fridge to keep the freshness.

Fukumitsuya

Fukumitsuya

Ishikawa Prefecture

Kagatobi is named after the in-house firefighters who were tough and powerful, highly skilled but short-tempered. They were known as "Cool" firefighters, and always popular among people in Edo.
This traditional brewery was founded in 1625 in Kanazawa City, a place that has come to be known as “Little Kyoto”—but that’s also grown to be an important city in its own right as a place that has seamlessly bridged the new and the old. Kanazawa is a castle town that was ruled by the Maeda family for three centuries, and it has preserved many of the traditions and artisanal crafts of the past—while also embracing contemporary tastes. And the same can be said for Fukumitsuya.
