Maboroshi “Junmai Daiginjo”

Hiroshima Prefecture


Orange you glad to have this sake?

Sake is an ever-changing art, and this junmai daiginjo is the proof. The brewers over at Nakao Brewing Company do something a little different, they use their own original apple yeast, which enhances the fragrance and refines the acidity. This is precisely why Maboroshi gives off any air of easy elegance. The undiluted sake has a lazy citrus that glides through the finely tuned junmai daiginjo flavor, and washes down incredibly smooth.

Nakao Brewing Company

Nakao Brewing Company

Hiroshima Prefecture

The Nakao Sake Brewery was established in 1871. It soon started using the brand name Seikyo, which means “True Mirror.” The brewery selected this name for its symbolism: the sake in the cup is like a mirror of which it is hoped that (in its taste) it truly reflects the heart of the brewer. Since then they continue in the spirit of “True heart and true intentions” of the founder and are still brewing sake with total commitment.
