Unpasteurized/undiluted sake with fresh and powerful flavors

Seasonal and limited supply release: November-March Unpasteurized/undiluted sake. Very fresh and powerful taste with rice flavor. This Jumai is made true to tradition and brewed only during the coldest months. The result? A well structured, clean sake that is simultaneously dry and rich. With a refreshing hint of cucumber, you’d never guess this brew has a powerful 18% ABV. When poured into a glass, the sake is a mellow gold, and can be warmed to bring out more sweetness. Make a toast to tradition and the future next time you drink Kagatobi Gokkan Junmai. Keep it in fridge to keep the freshness.

Fukumitsuya

Fukumitsuya

Ishikawa prefecture

Fukumitsuya was founded in 1625 near Mount Haku. The rainfall on these mountains soaks into the ground and flows into an underground spring that is used by Fukumitsuya in brewing. The brewers use this water in combination with just rice and microorganisms to produce only junmai sake, out of respect for the origins of sake brewing. Fukumitsuya’s “Kagatobi” brand is named for the local fire brigade from the Edo period (1603-1868), and represents the spirit and strength of Fukumitsuya’s sake. This spirit stands at the core of the brewery, and it’s present in all their sake.
