"Kitaya Ginnosato Junmai-ginjo" is a Junmai-ginjo which is made from rice specially grown by their own farmers and contracted farmers in rural Yame. Located in the prime breadbasket region of Kyushu, the brewery uses spring water from Mt. Shakka and Mt. Gozen and the subterranean Yabe River in the brewery process. The sake is made with 100% "Kitaya Ginnosato" rice which they raise lovingly in Yame, Fukuoka. The rice is polished to a ratio of 59% before being brewed with clear water, which gives it a harmonious rich full-bodied taste and fruity Ginjoko aroma. It brings out the best of various dishes, so enjoy pairing it with different food. In 2018, the influential Wine World Championships in Brussels added a Japanese sake category, "SAKE selection" and this sake was chosen as 1 of the 7 brands out of 132 brands to receive the Platinum Medal in the Junmai Ginjo-shu category, proving its high quality even on the world stage.
