A sake specifically designed with the U.S audience in mind. If you’re part of that audience, this is a quick pick. The slightly higher alcohol content is thanks to this sake not having any added water. Never fear though, Kamotsuru Tokubetsu Junmai is still more than drinkable with its strong fruit flavors and enticing aroma. The rich flavors pair wonderfully with spicy foods, so whip up a fire dish and get sipping!
Kamotsuru is brewed in Chugoku region.
Kamotsuru Brewing Company
Kamo refers to the location, and also is a pun on brewing. Combined with tsuru (crane) for good fortune, Kamotsuru was founded in 1873 in Saijo, Hiroshima known as the top three locations for great quality sake. Their signature soft water source is from the Kamo Mountains which has seeped into the ground over time, and their campus is a collection of striking white walled buildings, a backdrop for movies in the modern day. Currently employing four brewmasters, they are the maker of the first daiginjo sake, and continue to grace us with their classic, elegant creations.
