The Fine Sake Awards Japan2019 Daiginjo Division Gold Medal

"Yatsushika Kin Junmai-daiginjo" is a masterpiece Junmai-daiginjo made from "Yamada Nishiki" rice from Hyogo prefecture that is polished to a 40% ratio, and fermented with yeast cultured in-house. The brewery is surrounded by Mt. Kujurenzan, colloquially called "The Roof of Kyushu", a perfect place for brewing sake even in the harshest winters, and the water used to brew the sake comes from the clear subterranean river which irrigates the area. It is fermented with Kumamoto-based yeast cultured in-house which creates a mellow acidity and flowery aroma. One sip of it will fill your mouth with the umami of the rice. Prioritizing the true umami of Japanese sake over Ginjoko, this Junmai Daiginjo has a complex and rich flavor. It won a Gold medal at the "The Fine Sake Awards Japan2019", and pouring it into a wine glass will bring out its mellow and elegant aroma other than allowing you to appreciate its beautiful color.

[About "Yatsushika"]
The famous sake brand "Yatsushika" takes its name from the third-generation brewery and the chief brewer by taking one kanji letter each. The local town Kokonoe, Oita Prefecture. is surrounded by Kujurenzan, also known as "the roof of Kyushu." In winter, the area's temperature drops to below the freezing point. The perfect environment for cold weather production enables us to ferment a dignified, crisp, smooth, and dry sake.
