Among that, this Junmai Ginjo Shukon is available only during the winter as the freshly pressed brew is directly bottled, undiluted, beginning of winter season. A special brew with distinctly unique richness of genshu and sharp acidity that gives refreshing impression. Limited quantity - give it a try before its gone!
Brewery: Tamano Hikari Brewery (founded: 1673)
For over 300 years, Tamano Hikari Brewery has been working their hardest to brew supreme quality sake. Their motto is that "Good Sake comes from Good Rice" and so they polish all of their sake rice - obtained through contracts with private farmers - within the walls of their brewery. They were one of the first to halt the use of additives like alcohol and sugar, but were also the first to halt use of preservatives, and basically reestablished Junmai sake. In 1980, they added Ginjo style sake to their repertoire. Now almost all the sake they produce is Junmai Ginjo style.
