A junmai made with 100% Omachi rice grown in a single farm in Okayama prefecture. Made using the kimotozukuri (or kimoto) method, which involves the use of ambient lactic acid bacilli for the fermentation starter and human labour to mix rice and koji with a paddle. This junmai is characterised by a distinct rice umami taste. Best enjoyed slightly warmed up.

2019: Gold award “Kura Master, Junmai category”

TYPE: Kimoto junmai sake

OUR TASTING NOTES: On the nose, salty and earthy notes of seashells and wet pine cones, with hints of marzipan and custard cream. Dry and clean sake with lactic character and spicy notes of nutmeg and cloves. Lingering aftertaste of dark chocolate. When warmed up, it has a more earthy nose and tasty cappuccino and chocolate flavours, followed by a caramel aftertaste.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve at room temperature or warmed up (35-45 ºC)
