IBI White Muroka Namagenshu (720ml) 射美 White 無濾過生原酒

$103.00

A sake made uniquely with both white and Yellow Koji, each cultivated separately and then added to the tank together. A rare citric acid driven tartness provided by the white Koji melds with a pleasantly rich sweetness, surprisingly soft and clean to finish.

Sugihara Shuzo 杉原酒造

Established in 1892 during the Meiji Era in the town of Ono, Gifu Prefecture, Sugihara Shuzo, the producer of the Ibi brand, is currently one of the smallest breweries in Japan. 4th and 5th generation brewers, the father and son, work side by side to produce their eternally authentic handmade sake. Sugihara Shuzo makes a limited amount of sake showcasing the fine locally created rice grain and fine natural water source. The locality of the brewery suffers cold, mountainous winters which require that the sake is brewed through long slow fermentation, resulting in rich and elegant brews.
