Born “Gold Muroka”

Born “Gold Muroka”

Fukui Prefecture


An award winning sake with the prestige to match its name

This Muroka Junmai Daiginjo has an enticing pale gold color, which is reflected in its golden label. Being pasteurized only once immediately before shipping and lacking carbon filtration gives the sake a refreshing scent and flavor. The sake might appear vaguely cloudy, but don't worry, it's a good thing! Because this sake is unfiltered when it's squeezed it contains a little whiteness form the rice, which is an essential ingredient of the liquor. Born Gold holds true to its name, being a gold prize winner in the 2016 US National Sake Appraisal. To fully enjoy this award winning sake serve it cold in a large wine glass.

Katoukichibee Shouten

Fukui Prefecture

Originally operating as a money exchange business and very deeply involved in the affairs of the community, in 1860 the village headman and founder became involved in sake brewing. For eleven generations, they have carried the Kichibee name, and in 1866 registered the name as a trademark. In Sanskrit, “Born” is translated roughly as purity/striking truth and represents the brewery’s strong belief in second changes and karmic rewards for hard work. In the beginning of the Showa era, the emperor used Born sake for Japan’s ceremonies, festivals, and guests as Japan’s representative brand.
