The “Junmai Daiginjo” is the ambassador of our brewery. The rice “Yamada Nishiki” is polished at 40%. The manufacturing process runs from December to February, the coldest time of the year. The rice is washed to the nearest second and then spread in the open air to be cooled naturally and allow a uniform temperature drop to the heart of each grain of rice. All this process is done in small quantities. The fermentation period is long and takes place at low temperatures. We carefully package our sake bottles one after the other. Available only in limited quantities.
|History and philosophy of the brewery||The company was founded in 1892 in the Iga region. The Iga basin would have sheltered Lake Biwa about 4 million years ago. Its soil is rich in nutrients formed by the uplift of the ancient land layer of Lake Biwa. The quality of its fresh water from the surrounding mountains comes from the nutrients it acquires during its infiltration into the subsoil. It is also the large temperature difference between day and night that allows the rice grown in this way to keep all its nutrients well, which makes it possible to grow high-quality sake rice. Since 2019, Yuki Ota, the seventh-generation brewer, has been the head of the brewery, assisted by young brewers. The “Hanzo Junmai Daiginjo Migaki 40” was selected to be served to the various heads of state and government at the working dinner of the G7 Summit in Ise-Shima, Summit held in Mie Prefecture in 2016.|
