"Gakujuro Daiginjo undiluted" is a daiginjo sake created by Toyokuni Brewery, which makes all of their sake by hand in the delicate process of "funeshibori," using Hyogo "Yamada Nishiki", the finest type of sake rice, milled to 40%, and fermented at a low temperature over a long period. Aizu Basin is a snowy area with a rich natural environment that is scorching hot in summer and freezing cold in winter. In this environment, they use as little machinery as possible, wash all of their rice by hand, and use the traditional funeshibori technique to brew their sake, taking considerable time and effort. This sake is characterized by its powerful, gorgeous fragrance, and the flavor that brings out the refined, delicate taste of the rice. In addition to winning several competitions in Japan and around the world, this Daiginjo was also provided to world leaders at the 2019 G20 summit, and is beloved by sake connoisseurs.
