"Nanbubijin Tokubetsu-junmai " is a classic sake from the brand "Nanbubijin" which has been brewed with 55% of milled "Ginotome," a specially cultivated rice grown in Ninohe City of Iwate prefecture. "Ginotome" is an original Iwate sake-brewing rice cultivar grown through the collaboration between breweries and local rice farmers. The Tokubetsu Junmai is produced in a superior terroir in the brewery of Nanbu Toji of Ninohe, using local rice from Ninohe as well as pure underground water sourced from Ninohe's Oritsume Basenkyo Prefectural Natural Park. Created with the aim of being an outstanding sake that complements a wide variety of dishes, this sake exudes a delicate fruity aroma and the luxurious goodness of rice, while leaving a refreshing aftertaste. At the world's most prestigious wine-tasting competition, "International Wine Challenge 2017 ", this sake was the only one awarded the title of "Champion Sake" from 1245 brands of liquor across 9 different categories, a remarkable feat that attests to its place as the best Japanese sake in the world.

[About "Nanbubijin"]
