"Katsuyama Ken Junmai-ginjo (720ml)"is a Japanese sake, carefully brewed using "Yamada Nishiki" - a brewer's rice produced in Mirai, Hyogo Prefecture, polished down to a ratio of 50%. While mild in flavor, this elegant and refined sake has a beautiful fragrance, and a smooth taste which provides a well-rounded umami afterward. Slightly dry, with a gentle acidity, it has excellent umami and a delicately balanced structure, and is highly recommended for pairing with lightly flavored meals such as seafood. The name "Ken" bears the meanings "presentation" and "a wonderful gift." At the "International Wine Challenge (IWC)2019", the world's most prestigious wine competition, this Junmai Ginjo won the trophy awarded to the most excellent brand among gold medal-winning junmai ginjo sakes, establishing its place among the world's best.

[About "Katsuyama"]
Japanese sake "Katsuyama" inherits a tradition that has been established for more than 320 years. It is rumored that the origin of the name lies in the superstition that samurai won victories in heaps, and is associated with the "Katsuyama Chignon", a fashionable women's hairstyle in the early Edo period (17th century). It is a full-bodied sake made through a slow and luxurious preparation that involves producing only 1 tank per week, where the moromi (a mash of barley, barley koji, yeat and water) is carefully fermented.
