Soft and mild. 100% Junmai sake with plum

Plum mixed with 100% Junmai sake. Unlike plum wine made with distilled spirit, it doesn't have that alcohol smell. Very mild aroma of plums, soft on the palete. Great aperitif as well as digestif with ice cream.

Asabiraki

Iwate Preserving the skills from Nanbu Toji (one of the three groups of professional brewing masters from over 300 years ago), Mr. Fujio has been engaged in sake-making for 50 years since he was 18. Because Yamadanishiki, the most suitable rice for sake, wasn't available in Iwate prefecture, he has researched varieties of rice that are grown in regions with similar cold climate and developed "Ginginga" rice which has incredibly refreshing aroma and light mouthfeel when polished down to 50%. He has been designated as a traditional skilled worker by the government. His motto is "sake making is agriculture. Stay with the basics and do not cut corners."
