Who better to brew sake than rice farmers themselves? They’ve got the knowledge to produce some wondrous sake, such as this aptly named brew, Karoyaka, which means “lightness”. A shining expression of mochi sweetness followed up by a cheeky cherry notes on the finish. On the nose, classic ricey and floral aromas. The depth contained in such light sake is surprising, and makes us wish we had bottle of this on hand every day.
Chikurin is brewed in Chugoku region.
Marumoto Brewing Company
The Marumoto Brewing Company, founded in 1867, is often known as the “Farmer’s Brewery” because the people who brew the sake also grow the rice. Their care for their craft is so deep that they grow their own 100% Yamadanishiki rice for their sake. The brewery’s location at the foot of Chikurin-ji Mountains provides sparkling clear mountain water and luscious land prime for rice and sake. Always the fan of innovation, Marumoto-san likes to try new things, including sparkling sake, so the brewery is bound to have a sake to suit your tastes.
