New rice, great taste

This sake uses Asahimai rice which has been gaining popularity due to its suitability for brewing. This sake is a testament to the brewers’ skill, as it won first place in the Junmai Daiginjo category at the “Sake Competition 2019.” A luscious aroma falls into a fresh, citrus acidity. Notes of steamed rice and cotton candy push this toward the rich and sweet side in the best way.

Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten

Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten

Mie Prefecture

Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten was founded in 1869 near the Suzuka Mountains. The area was thriving with breweries but this is the last one left. Led by a toji who was born and raised in the area, the brewers choose to create their sake in a more natural way. They focus on small batch starters with all koji made by hand. They also put their sake through a much longer fermentation period than normal in order to achieve a more delicate and fragrant aroma. With 100% effort put into every batch, the brewers create wonderful sake with no regrets.
