Kikusui Funaguchi Kunko Nama Genshu Can 3pk 200ml
Rice-Polishing Ratio: 70%
Brewery Location: Niigata Prefecture
Food Pairings: Will draw out the flavors of rich, unique foods such as Sea Urchin
Tasting Notes: Style meets Depth in this special take on the famous Funaguchi.
Instead of fortifying Kunko with the usual jozo (distiller's alcohol), sake-kasu Shochu is used, adding a whole new world to the aromatics and flavors of Funaguchi. Lush and luxurious mouthfeel, with a finish that leaves you smiling.
Brewery: Kikusui Sake Co., LTD. (founded: 1881)
With 130 years of history on their shoulders, the Kikusui Sake Company of Niigata prefecture built themselves up from the bottom. The name "Kikusui" is a reference to a Noh theatre play, wherein the dew (Sui) from the petals of chrysanthemums (Kiku) grant eternal life. In 2004 they established the Kikusui Sake Research Institute in an effort to both raise the bar on the quality of their offerings and wrestle with concepts such as enjoyment of sake, and sake culture. They are proud to produce "Funaguchi" - Japan's first commercially available Nama (unpasteurized) sake.
