100 years of excellence

Nishide Shuzo brews up this special batch of junmai daiginjo using a unique yeast that was discovered one hundred years ago, hence the name “100 Year Sake”. This yeast, called kuratsuki kobo (house yeast), only grows within the grounds of the brewery itself. In fact, breweries that have been crafting sake for generations sometimes take pride in their specific yeast. What does this mean for you? A sake with mild, yet engaging banana flavor that slips into a rich sake rice umami. Expect just a dash of acidity on the finish.
