Like finding a gold mine

Born “Gold” is a winner of countless accolades and a staple everyone should try, even amongst our vast portfolio. This is a “muroka,” which doesn’t go through any refining treatments, keeping all the fine flavors and aroma intact. Extreme smoothness in texture is achieved by maturing at a temperature of 14 F for one year before blending. If you’re looking for a smooth, full-bodied junmai daiginjo to impress your friends, this is the one.
