If you find yourself craving a bubbly drink that isn’t too sweet then look no further. AWA Sparkling sake graces your senses with a fine ginjo scent and a surprisingly distinct umami aftertaste. This sake uses a secondary fermentation process to produce those buoyant bubbles that deliver bursts of flavor to your palette. While many bubbly drinks, like champagne, add sugar after filtering, Nanbu Bijin AWA lets the sake remain true to itself. This prevents the sake from being overly sweet and lets the umami and dry qualities shine through.
Nanbu Bijin is brewed in Tohoku region.
From a tiny town of Ninohe City, Nanbu Bijin has a big personality thanks to the owner Kosuke Kuji. His leadership through the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 along with leading the brand into international recognition has been documented in many forms including the movie Kampai! For the Love of Sake (2015). Their family crest symbol on the center of some of their updated labels is a testament to how they value historical knowledge while aiming for the new. They use unpasteurized well water, and single in-bottle pasteurization help create innovative flavor profiles not to be missed.
