The brewery has always been obsessed with Yamadanishiki rice, and it’s no different with this sake. Using soft water from the Kitayama Mountains, the brewers have crafted a mellow, mature tasting sake. A scent like a bouquet of jasmine flowers leads into a clean, dry texture. The light mineral flavor develops and fades into a slightly crystalline umami aftertaste. Can be enjoyed at room temp and gently warmed.
Azumaichi is made in
Gochoda Brewing Company
Gochoda Brewing Company was founded in 1922 by a branch family to the Setoh family sake brewery, formerly with 350 years history in Saga Prefecture. They are one of the first growers of Yamadanishiki rice in Saga Prefecture, and take pride in growing this king of sake rice around their brewery. They value making everything by hand, and incorporate machinery and original wood and bamboo tools. Their motto is sake brewing starts with rice growing, and their philosophy is “local rice, local people and brewing traditions that become one to produce delicious sake.”
