Umeshu that’s clean and elegant

Ginko-bai litterally means plum with elegant aroma. Its elegant sweetness while striking a perfect balance with its sourness cleanses your palate after a bite of any rich flavored food. This is for someone that didn't like umeshu's unique rich sweetness. The unique method to slowly extract juice from ripe fresh "Fukui" plum and mix with Junmai sake, makes this clean crisp and gentle sweetness possible. Not on the rocks, but just enjoy it straight, slightly chilled.

Ippongi Kubohonten

Ippongi Kubohonten

Fukui Prefecture

“Ippongi” comes from Zen language meaning “supreme truth, a state that achieves the greatest knowledge.” The history of the brewery goes back to 1902. It is located in Fukui Prefecture beneath the Mt. Haku, the best location for sake brewing with clean water and beautiful rice fields. Their famous “Denshin” brand is brewed differently with seasonality. It literally means “heart-to-heart” because the brewers believe that people may be able to communicate but not easily by heart. They want “Denshin” to be droplets of magic that acts as liaison.
