Junmai Daiginjo “Bokusui” Sake features a light and fragrant aroma coupled with a gentle taste and a well defined flavor.
The rice used in our sake is specially milled so that less than 40% of the original size of the grain remains. Our Junmai Daiginjo Sake is carefully crafted to have a low fat and low protein content and has absolutely no alcohol added. Utilizing this complex approach in addition to a low temperature fermentation process greatly enhances the pleasant fruity aroma and soft taste of the sake.
Mutsuzawa Town’s original sake rice cultivation project began in 2016.
The special sake rice is produced by local, independent rice farmers who have contracted with the town of Mutsuzawa to cultivate high quality rice which is the most important ingredient in fine sake.
