Junmai that appeals to youngins

This junmai is no old man sake. Yes, it has savory and sweet rice notes rather than their fruity floral counterpart junmai daiginjo. Yes, you can enjoy this both chilled and room temperature. But the soft yuzu brightness and hint of honey on the nose with the balanced nigami (bitterness) and slight weightiness on your palate showcases a new kind of junmai that perhaps the younger generation can get excited about!

Heiwa Brewing Company

1928 is when a sake-loving gentleman who married into the family established the brewery where it was originally a temple. After the hiatus during World War II, the company was renamed “Heiwa” meaning peace and harmony. When the current fourth generation owner Norimasa Yamamoto came back from working in Tokyo in 2004, he switched the brewery’s focus from mass-produced sake to carefully made premium sake. The KID line is intended to express the local nature, including their pristine water. And yes, they want to nurture both their sake and young talents as if you would nurture your own kid.
