The pale silver hue of this sake is like a soft moon on a crisp night. The flavor follows this imagery too, with a clean, dry mouthfeel and engaging notes of Asian pear, not too strong, but just right. Before getting too caught up in this sake’s savory flavors, take a moment to admire its aroma, a marvelous mix of pineapple and rice pudding. Keep in mind Kurosawa Ginrei took home silver in the 2018 World Sake Challenge, so it’s bound to be special.
Kurosawa is made in
Kurosawa Brewing Company
Founded in 1858, Kurosawa Brewing Company has access to two underground wells fed by the Chikuma River. This water is soft and tasty, so much so that Kurosawa uses it for both brewing and to sell as mineral water. The brewers focus on the traditional kimoto method of brewing. They use this labor-intensive process to produce 60% of their sake. Despite the additional work and added time, Kurosawa finds this method their preferred way to get deep, full-bodied sake with rich flavor. Their sake is now being exported to the U.S., Germany, Australia, Malaysia and other countries!
