Judan-Jikomi Sake  Sophisticated premium sweetness and fruity bouquet are the gift of rice.  “Judan-Jikomi” is thoroughly brewed by fermenting at a lower temperature, and adding steamed rice and rice koji with great care and attention to the main fermentation mash in ten stages (judan) of brewing, which takes twice as long as the standard types of sake.  “Judan-Jikomi” can be called sake’s equivalent of noble late harvest wine made from rice, because of its mellow flavor and rich aroma.

Until brewmaster Miho Imada came along, Hattanso was an indigenous rice strain abandoned and forgotten. Imada was driven to revive this strain, convinced that it would be ideal for sake-making.  After years of cultivation, Fukucho (Forgotten Fortune) is the result. Turns out that this rice is so well suited to Imada’s vision that she uses a high rice polishing ratio of 75%, meaning she only mills 25% of the outer portion of the rice.

Okunomatsu Tokubetsu Junmai really good!!!

Wonderful well structured and medium bodied tokubetsu junmai. Nice rice notes in the nose and some fruit on the palate. nothing pretentious, but just enjoyable.

Hattanso is an heirloom rice varietal that was revived by female Toji, Miho Imada. No one had used this rice for 300 years, but now it is being exclusively grown for the Fukucho brewery. The sake has a delicious rice flavor and incredibly smooth texture. Excellent match with oysters.

ROOT OF INNOCENCE - This sake is crafted in one of a few but growing number of breweries where the brewery owner is also the master brewer (toji).
