"The ultimate expression of "the ultimate food sake."


It has a subtle fruity aroma on the palate, as well as a refreshing acidity reminiscent of citrus fruits. Low sugar content, freshness, and youthful astringency are also exquisitely displayed whenever it is paired with a meal. Due to the use of flat polished rice, the rice has an outstanding sharpness that helps to clear the palate. Enjoy chilled with a delicious meal.

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."
