A sake brewed near Rokko mountain. As fortune would have it, the mountain creates ideal conditions for sake brewing. The cold winds coming down the South side slow fermentation allowing for more controlled brewing, which helped craft the luxurious sweetness of Fujuku Black. A nose of white peach and thick flavor won this sake two gold medals in 2017: the Kura Master Daiginjo gold and the US Sake Appraisal gold. Enjoy in a large wine glass.
Fukuju is brewed in Hyogo Prefecture in the Kansai region.
Since 1751 over 13 generations, Kobe Shushinkan has continued with strong conviction that sake making must continue as a prized craft of Japan. The brewery compound houses their own restaurant, shops and event space to help provide a chance to take part in celebrating this art yourself. Their brand name Fukuju comes from one of the Seven Lucky Gods, who is said to provide longevity and prosperity. It is their wish that anyone who is holding this bottle, be blessed with happiness. They are in Geographical Indication Nadagogo, and strive to have top ethical and environmental standards.
