A friend to all food

Like other sake in the Hakurakusei line, this sake is brewed to be supremely food friendly. With an aroma that whispers of banana and a zippy, citrus-like acidity, this junmai ginjo can bolster savory cuisine or walk hand-in-hand with sweeter foods such as Japanese “nimono” dishes. It’s produced using a little known rice variety, Miyagi prefecture’s Kura no Hana sake rice, that’s been milled to 55% . Serve chilled.

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.
