Ripples of sweetness

Like Gangi’s other products, “Mizunowa” is meant to evoke the feeling of being dockside or relaxing on the water. The label represents the gentle ripples made by fish bouncing from the surface of a river. Like those ripples, this sake is soft and expanding. The texture is juicy and clean, which matches the flavor of apricot and fuzzy peach. A dash of acidity graces the finish.

Yaoshin Brewing Company

The first generation founder remodeled their rice granary to a sake brewery in 1877 when they were also in the business of soy sauce, oil and ice. The brand name “Gangi” shares its name with the stepped pier where they received raw rice from upstream, and the Nishiki River is a large part of the brewery’s identity. Now in the fifth generation, they focus on quality junmai, and their sake is available in numerous countries overseas. They liken their brewing to carving a statue out of a single piece of wood because they aim to bring out the maximum potential of rice.
