"Refreshing and crisp sake using local ingredients of Iwate Prefecture, in Japan."

Peach on the nose with refreshing cucumber and herb kick. Lively lime zest note gives it wild acidity and minerality; a touch of caramel and nutty notes brings a lovely lingering peppery finish. It uses the sake rice, “Gin Ginga”, and the original yeast “Giovanni”, both local products of Iwate, Japan. It uses all local ingredients like rice, water, yeast and artisans in Iwate, Japan.

The brewery was established in 1902, and the Nanbu Bijin brand name came to be in 1951. The area where the brewery is located used to be called Nanbu ("the Southern area"). The place is rich with nature, abundant water and fertile soil. In Japan, most breweries of the time produced rough and sweet sake, but Nanbu brewery wanted to make clean and beautiful sake like a fair Southern maiden. Hence, the name Nanbu Bijin (which stands for "Southern Beauty").
