Rare rice, regal sake

This sake represents the pinnacle of the Hakurakusei series. It’s brewed with heirloom Omachi rice milled to 40%, which is relatively rare for this rice with so much depth and umami. The rice gives this brew an herbal quality that mixes well with the refined classic daiginjo aromatics. With a light body and delicate balance, this premium sake enhances the flavors of cuisine spanning the gamut.

Niizawa Brewing Company

Established in 1873, makers of the infamous 0.85% RPR sake called Reikyo “Absolute 0” has quite a history. They were forced to move from their home from Northern Miyagi prefecture to the border of Yamagata due to the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. Current fifth-generation president Iwao Niizawa became Miyagi prefecture’s youngest brewmaster in 2000, and by 2018, the torch of the brewmaster was passed on to Japan’s youngest female brewmaster Nanami Watanabe. Coined as the “ultimate food sake,” the flavors themselves will prove their unwavering commitment and the simple appreciation of quality sake.
