ASABIRAKI KYOKUSEN JUNMAI DAIGINJO

Genzo Murai who was "Samurai" of Nanbu Clan established Asabiraki Sake Brewery in 1871 (Meiji Era). The name came from a poet blessing the departure of ship from "Manyo-syu "; the oldest poetry book exisits in Japan. "Nanbu Toji" is a group of sake brewing experts who formed around this area more than 300 years ago. Their exellent techniques have become famous through out all of Japan, and many of them have been invited to sake breweries all over Japan as sake brewing masters.

The essence of their techniques is creating well-defined aroma with sharp finish in its sake with lower temparature and longer-term fermentation techniques using the merit of cold Norhern weather in Iwate. This technique is called Nanbu Style.

Tasting Notes:
Attractively redolent of mint. On the palate, mint combines with ripe cantaloupe making Kyokusen a most flavorful sake. Amino acids(umami) contribute to the round texture, and subtle sweetness in the long, complex finish. Supremely elegant.
