Tastes like falling in love

This vibrant showstopper is beautifully soft and feminine, brewed by one of Japan's few female brewery owners and brewmaster. Brewed in Hiroshima, the birthplace of ginjo sake, known for remarkably soft water that requires expert skill to use in sake production. Once mastered, it enables a highly controlled, precise fermentation resulting in vibrant fruit aromas. This Junmai Ginjo is bottled without charcoal fining, keeping all the flavor intact.

Imada Brewing Company

“Try a hundred things. Make a thousand improvements.” Imada Brewing Company lives by these words said by Senzaburo Miura, a local legend who invented the “soft water brewing method.” These days, Imada Brewing Company is one of the few breweries with a female brewmaster, President Miho Imada. She was selected for the BBC 100 Women 2020. Imada Brewing Company is also well known for reviving and using a native Hiroshima sake rice called Hattanso for the first time in around 100 years. They’ve been growing it ever since and using it to brew great sake.
