Mizubasho is brewed from water that began as snow and rainfall that was then filtered slowly through the ground before being pumped up in Kawaba, a small village. Like the distance traveled by the water, drinking Mizubasho takes you on a journey. From the heady, mixed-fruit aroma to the perfect amounts of umami and dryness, this sake is sure to satisfy. Be sure to relish the flavor by serving chilled.
Mizubasho is brewed in Gunma Prefecture in the Kanto region.
