“Kijoshu” is a very special brew made with some of the brewing water replaced with finished sake. Made with Hakkaisan’s signature snowmelt brewing water, local sake rice and extra amounts of carefully made koji, the result is a luxurious, sweet and ageable beverage fitting as a dessert and night cap. Enjoy it over ice cream, hard and aged cheese, dried fruits, fresh fruit with cream, chocolate and even pound cake.
Hakkaisan is made in
Hakkaisan Brewery Company
Hakkaisan Brewery Company was founded in 1922 in the foothills of Hakkai Mountains, in an area with snow accumulating over 10 feet at times. The snowmelt water is naturally filtered by the mountain, providing water for the rice fields and for the elegant sake they produce. Their signature Niigata style is known as “tanrei karakuchi,” which is crisp, clean and dry, achieved by slow, low-temperature fermentation. They only use handmade koji and produce in small batches, and their guiding principle is to produce sake of the highest quality that pairs well with food.
