"Kajokotobuki Junmai" is a Junmai made with Dewanosato brewer's rice developed in Yamagata Prefecture, polished to 55%. Carefully brewed with melted snow water from Zao, it is bursting with natural power and Yamagata yeast. Leveraging traditional brewing and modern brewing techniques, this rich sake offers a fine balance of aroma and taste. It makes full use of sake rice, yeast, and water as well as the terroir of the sake-brewing region of Yamagata, and is a certified sake bearing the Yamagata geographical indication (GI) and the the designation ""Yamagata Selection"" that identifies outstanding sake from the Prefecture. This junmaishu has earned a high reputation worldwide, and for four consecutive years has won the Gold Medal of U.S. National Sake Appraisal, the oldest sake appraisal organization outside of Japan.
