This sake was brewed with local flavor in mind. The brewers use Fusakogane rice right from the local Chiba Prefecture, but they are sure to polish a little less than normal, which emboldens the rice flavor and makes for a beefier umami. This spirited brew has taken home a gold medal in the 2016 Kan Sake Award (budget warm category) and the 2018 Kan Sake Award (budget hot category).
Kinoene is brewed in Chiba Prefecture in the Kanto region.
