"The ultimate sake for food."


This sake is marketed as “the ultimate food sake.” A combination of melon and banana aromas and a refreshing citrus-like acidity characterize the finish. This product is characterized by excellent crispness on the back end, thanks to the use of flat polished rice. Besides having a stand-alone balance, it is also resistant to temperature changes and, when heated, can be enjoyed at temperatures higher than 70°C without any change in flavour. It is a dual-purpose bottle that can be used for both cold and hot sake.

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."
