Shigaizumi was founded in 1960 in Nakano City, Nagano Prefecture. It was first established as a joint venture by several breweries. The young master brewer’s goal of “sake loved by everyone” has steadily evolved over the years, and the gentle taste of the sake is loved by many customers.
They use fresh water from Ryukoji Temple in Kijimadaira Village, Nagano Prefecture, which has been selected as one of the 100 best waters in Japan. The water has a great influence on the taste of the sake, and by using this water, they are able to produce a very aromatic smooth sweet on the palate that has been spectacularly popular in NZ !
This junmai ginjo is made from Kijimadaira’s Yamadanishiki rice, which is rated triple-A in the Japanese Rice Evaluation Contest.
