Another bottling of the brewery's award winning junmai-shu that uses a unique rice, this sake is made with Mikinishiki rice. Classified as a 'heritage' strain of rice, the brewery revived the rice and it's unique flavour.

A modern tasting sake, this is a bright and slightly tart tasting sake. Soft on the palate, notes of lemon curd and zest present themselves first, followed by a hint of gentle spice before a pleasing chrysanthemum finish meets you at the end. Surprising complexity for a dry sake.
