This pure rice ginjo is brewed with water that started as snow in the mountains around the brewery and, over many years, melted then filtered through the earth. This gives the sake a pure, refreshing taste, but enough transparency for you to notice the nuanced smoothness. Like catching snowflakes on your tongue or frolicking in fresh powder, the flavor will whisk you away to the beautiful slopes of pristine, snowy mountains.
Denshin is brewed in Fukui Prefecture in the Hokuriku region.
“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 Mt. 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 that people may be able to communicate but not easily by heart. They want “Denshin” to be droplets of magic that acts as liaison.
