A junmai that has been brewed with three times the amount of koji normally used, and bottled as it is without adding any further water.
For this bottle, the brewers used a combination of yellow and white koji, which gives the sake distinct fruit-like acidity and minerality. A sake in which rice umaminess and a refreshing acidity are perfectly balanced and complemented with a clean finish.
TYPE: Junmai undiluted sake (genshu)
