Born “Gold” is a winner of countless accolades and a staple everyone should try, even amongst our vast portfolio. This is a “muroka,” which doesn’t go through any refining treatments, keeping all the fine flavors and aroma intact. Extreme smoothness in texture is achieved by maturing at a temperature of 14 F for one year before blending. If you’re looking for a smooth, full-bodied junmai daiginjo to impress your friends, this is the one.
Born is made in
Originally operating as a money exchange business that was deeply involved in the affairs of the community, the village headman and founder reoriented it toward sake brewing in 1860. They have carried the Kichibee name for 11 generations, and registered it as a trademark in 1866. In Sanskrit, “born” is translated roughly as “purity” or “striking truth,” and represents the brewery’s strong belief in second chances and karmic rewards for hard work. In the beginning of the Showa period (1926-1989), the emperor used “Born” sake for Japan’s ceremonies, festivals and guests as Japan’s representative brand.
