A crisp and dry junmai ginjo from Niigata with a mild aroma and delicate texture
Your first taste of this sake will give you a whiff of its mild aroma reminiscent of banana and La France pears. The texture is exceptionally smooth with a clean and crisp finish. The relatively mellow texture from the moderate aging process creates a particularly well-rounded experience, where the sake's slightly sweet taste is replaced by a dry aftertaste once the sake is swallowed.
A traditional taste carefully crafted with rice and water of the finest quality
The inside of our brewery is filled with steam from steaming rice even when snow is falling in Kashiwazaki. Our skilled brewers steam the polished rice before carefully extracting its umami flavors using all their five senses and letting the sake age in the tranquil environment of our brewery. Junmai Ginjo Irodori has a mellow and elegant taste, and it is an unassuming junmai sake that will add a touch of something special to your everyday life.
Brewed with rice cultivated in Niigata PrefectureThe quality of rice varies greatly depending on its environment and cultivar. Junmai Ginjo Irodori is brewed only using premium sake rice cultivated by experienced farmers whom we have carefully selected in Niigata, the largest rice-producing region in Japan. All the rice is then milled at our own milling plant to get the rice into its optimum state for brewing the most delicious sake.
The soft texture of Niigata's waterIn spring, the abundant snow that had fallen during winter melts away and seeps into the mountainside, becoming high-quality underground water that is then channeled to various parts of the town. Koshinohomare is brewed using this underground water from melting snow. The use of ultra-soft water for brewing creates a light and delicate sake.
Don't over-chill the sake!At temperatures closer to room temperature, you can savor more of the inherent richness, sweetness, and aroma of the junmai ginjo, and enjoy more of its unique character.
