Taking a sip of this is like taking a bite into the juicy, sweet nectar of a white peach called Shimizu Hakuto, the queen of peaches, from Okayama prefecture. They even use peach yeast for their carefully crafted sake, and express the fruit’s elegant white flesh and natural sweetness by using a process with minimal filtering. This sake contains a whole fleshy white peach in every 500-milliliter bottle.
Kamikokoro is made in
Kamikokoro Brewing Company
Kamikokoro Brewing Company was founded in 1913 in Okayama prefecture, a land famous for being one of the leading peach-producing areas in Japan. In fact, they even brew some of their sake with Okayama white peach yeast. But their commitment to quality goes beyond just the peaches. The company belief is that they’ll only provide sake they would serve to their own family. This hasn’t faltered, even during the post-World War II rice shortage, when using additives and distilled alcohol could allow for higher yield. The brewers continued to make quality sake with full rice flavor, and still do!
