IWC 2010 Trophy Champion, 2011 Gold Medal - Daiginjo Category
Tasting Notes : Head brewer & 7th generation owner Inoue-san’s philosophy is to showcase the produce of Tochigi. Using only local rice & yeast cultivated in Tochigi, this Daiginjyo made from 100% hitogokochi yields an elegant mouthfeel with soft, clean acidity that embraces your palate, culminating with a finish of light spice and gentle sweetness. Stone fruits and fresh mineriality on the nose. Clean, bright acidity on the finish balances the rich, earthy flavours of locally cultivated Hitogokochi rice. Best enjoyed in a wine glass.
