A no-frills, slightly sweet and sophisticated nigori with a hint of melon on the palate; it is incredibly smooth and balanced to please both novice and experienced drinkers. Texture can be a bit chunky with the natural rice koji, with enzymatic benefits to both your body and soul. The green bottle is reminiscent of the bountiful nature that surrounds the brewery and the clear, soft water from Koyasan.
Heiwa is brewed in Wakayama Prefecture in the Kinki region.
Heiwa Brewing Company
1928 is when a sake-loving gentleman who married into the family established the brewery where it was originally a temple. After the hiatus during World War II, the company was renamed “Heiwa” meaning peace and harmony. When the current fourth generation owner Norimasa Yamamoto came back from working in Tokyo in 2004, he switched the brewery’s focus from mass-produced sake to carefully made premium sake. The KID line is intended to express the local nature, including their pristine water. And yes, they want to nurture both their sake and young talents as if you would nurture your own kid.
