Collection: Kinmon Akita Sake Brewery

Japanese name: 金紋秋田酒造

Brand name: X3

The X3 designation is derived from the fact that sake is brewed using three times the normal amount of sake lees.
Increasing the amount of sake lees tends to make the sake taste sweet, but by utilizing skilled techniques, the brewery is able to produce sake that is not overly sweet.

From: Akita prefecture

Founded in: 1939

The whole production of Kinmon Akita Sake Brewery evolves around the concept of umami. This is why a big part of their sake is brewed at junmai grade and why there are so many aged bottles in their line-up, since the ageing process emphasises even more any umami notes.
