Calm like a winter morning

The "Rin" in Denshin Rin means cold, frigid, like the winters at a sake brewery. Harsh winters are ideal for sake-making, and are part of the art that produced this soothing semi-dry sake. The brewers use a rare rice to deliver a mellow taste that retains a crispness, like cold snow. Serve slightly cold with sweet dishes to experience this sake's full potential.

Ippongi Kubohonten

Ippongi comes from Zen language meaning “supreme truth, a state that achieves the greatest knowledge.” The history of the brewery goes back to 1902. It is located in Fukui prefecture beneath the Mount Haku, the best location for sake brewing with clean water and beautiful rice fields. Their famous “Denshin” brand is brewed differently with seasonality. It literally means “heart-to-heart” because the brewers believe the magic of this sake can help people connect and communicate from the heart.
