In 2015 when the extreme rice polishing limit was thought to be 8%, president Niizawa and his team created a 7% RPR sake. Kura no Hana sake rice native to Miyagi prefecture is polished over 350 hours and brewed with their house yeast to achieve the simplicity and complexity of this sake. Zankyo means reverberation and this sake’s fresh tropical notes may disappear ever so clearly like a lingering memory.

Zankyo is made in
Niizawa Brewing Company
Established in 1873, makers of the infamous 0.85% RPR sake called Reikyo “Absolute Zero” has quite a history. They were forced to move from their home from Northern Miyagi prefecture to the border of Yamagata due to the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. Current fifth-generation president Iwao Niizawa became Miyagi prefecture’s youngest brewmaster in 2000, and by 2018, the torch of the brewmaster was passed on to Japan’s youngest female brewmaster Nanami Watanabe. Coined as the “ultimate food sake,” the flavors themselves will prove their unwavering commitment and the simple appreciation of quality sake.
