TAKIZAWA by Shinshuumeijyou Shuzo
Designed for the modern Japanese palate, and brewed to be a celebration of Nagano, Takizawa is a beautiful range of sake. It retains the brewery's high aroma style, but with a bolder body and higher acidity.
By creating direct contracts with local rice farmers, the brewery is able to get top-grade Nagano Hitogokoti rice grown to their specifications as a better price. As a result, the farmers make a little more margin, and the brewery is able to put out high quality sake at a great value.
In addition, Takizawa uses a specific water source drawn from an underground mountain stream. This water is naturally filtered through obsidian (Dragon Glass!) which gives it an amazing flavour.
Available in Singapore for the first time, exclusively with Mr Otaru.
