Served in first class on Japan Airlines, “Wing of Japan” is a blend of two junmai daiginjo of 20% and 35% rice polishing ratios. Both brews utilize Yamadanishiki rice grown in Hyogo prefecture, and are aged at 32 degrees Fahrenheit for about two years. Prior to shipping they are blended in a 1:1 ratio to form a sake that is quite aromatic, with an umami-rich flavor that delivers dry.
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.
