Aged and elegant

This junmai daiginjo sake has the honor of being the first sake to be produced using Daishichi’s super-flat rice polishing technique, as well as earning the highest praise at the Vinexpo. Daishichi “Minowamon” is aged to bring elegance and unwavering depth to the sake. A rich umami aroma prepares you for the silky, sweet rice flavor that fades into a lingering finish. It’s quite a delight!

Daishichi Brewing Company

Daishichi Brewing Company is located in the castle town of Nihonmatsu, and was founded in 1752 by Saburoemon Ohta, originally from a samurai family. Daishichi means big seven, and comes from the hereditary name of consecutive family heads Shichiemon. Daishichi makes rich, mellow sake with an outstanding reputation in the orthodox kimoto brewing method, in which they specialize. The numerous accolades, won both nationally and internationally, can perhaps be attested to master brewer Takanobu Sato’s perfectionist ways. Their sake is exceptionally balanced and is food friendly to any portion of a meal, from any part of the world.
