"A refreshing and crisp daiginjo, with a focus on the flavour of rice."


Despite being a "daiginjo," the aroma from the yeast is not amplified, with the emphasis instead on the rice-derived flavour. The pleasant aroma of bananas and melons is immediately followed by a pineapple-like freshness. With a gentle sweetness and refreshing acidity, the finish leaves a delicate aftertaste. A versatile food sake, it can be paired with almost any meal, be it Japanese, Western, or Chinese. Use a wine glass to drink it after it has been chilled lightly in your refrigerator.

The Niizawa Brewery

"Our current toji took over the role of toji from President Iwao Niizawa at the age of 22. She took over within 3 years of joining the brewery. (At the time, she was the youngest female toji in Japan.) *Toji – The person in charge of the brewing process at the sake brewery is called Toji.
Rather than brewing in a strict top-down hierarchical environment, where a veteran toji dictates the brewing process, our kurabito (brewers) collaborate, learn from, and inspire each other daily. Therefore, they share their opinions and cooperate in sake brewing regardless of age, background, or gender. This environment, focused on collective growth, ensures that we are constantly pursuing the best sake."
