Tasting Notes: Kondo Shuzo uses only their own hand-selected Gohyakumangoku sake rice - well known for it's suitability for sake brewing - to produce this sake. Having perfected their craft day-by-day over the last 140 years, the brewery would now like to present to the USA market a rich, round semi-dry sake brewed with care using Mount Akagi mineral water.
Brewery: Kondo Shuzo (founded: 1875) In Year 8 of the Meiji Era, Kondo Shuzo was established in the town of Omama in the Gunma Prefecture, and they have been brewing sake with Akagisan's (Akagi Mountain's) subterranean spring water ever since. The breweries slogan is "Otoko no Sake, Akagisan kara Kuchi" (aka. “a Sake among men - from Akagi mountain to your lips”) and they have strong local popularity in Gunma Prefecture, where their main fanbase resides. They are loved for their refreshingly crisp sake.
