Summer Sake Bishonen Junmai Ginjo Kikuchi
Winner of the gold prize in the Junmai Sake category at Kura Master 2019 in France. Locally produced sake rice 'Hana Nishiki' is brewed with clean Kikuchi water, carefully fermented at low temperature, and directly pressed to achieve sake at 16 % alcohol content.
President Sendo says, "It is fruity, but with the sweetness and umami of the rice fully expressed, it has a wonderful refreshing aftertaste. The sourness and spiciness are exquisitely balanced. With the permission of Kikuchi City, we also were able to use the family crest of the Kikuchi clan, a long-ruling local samurai family, on this label. Kikuchi, including its makers, is all in one bottle!"
