With bursts of juicy apple and mango on the nose, this junmai daiginjo won’t disappoint when it comes to first impressions. A luscious texture on your palate will follow, thanks to careful extraction of the umami from the local Yamadanishiki rice. Pair this with rich fish and it will marry well and refresh your palate. A must try from a maker known for beautifully fruity and aromatic sake.
Toyo Bijin is made in
Sumikawa Brewing Company
Founded in 1921 by the Sumikawa family, this brewery rests in the hills near a small village to the northeast of Yamaguchi. They are known for their ginjo sake and their brand, “Toyo Bijin.” At the renowned SAKE COMPETITION, their brews bring home gold medals almost every year! To create these beauties, the brewery uses rice carefully sourced through direct contracts with farmers, and they even grow a little Yamadanishiki sake rice themselves for limited release. Produced with soft spring water and long, low temperature fermentation, their sake continues to be a delight, year after year.
