The Yamadanishiki rice for this sake is cultivated in the Special A District in East Tojo then polished way down to a stupendous 30%! When brewed at low temperature and with kumamoto yeast, the sake takes on a distinctly ginjo scent, but retains the extravagant and round flavor you love about junmai daiginjo. This brew is a fantastic representation of Suigei’s distinct style, and it stands out amongst the crowd because of this uniqueness
Suigei is brewed in Shikoku region.
Suigei Brewing Company
The only sake brewery in Kochi City, Suigei pulls its name from the alias of Yodo Yamauchi, a daimyo from the Shikoku region during the Edo period. The brewers hope to make sake that pairs harmoniously with food—sake that is dry yet with high acidity and umami—using the isolated Tosa mountain’s pure spring water. Tosa’s food culture has been nurtured by abundant seafood and fresh vegetables from the mountains. Dining occasions there are marked by sake drinking, large portions of various dishes ranging from sashimi to tempura, and enjoyable conversation, so Suigei’s sake is naturally designed to bring out the best flavors of these foods and to bring everyone at the table together in good cheer.
