大吟醸 真・地酒宣言

National New Sake Awards, 2015, Gold Medal, 平成27年度全国新酒鑑評会金賞受賞

IWC 2010 Trophy Champion, 2011 Gold Medal

The Sawahime Daiginjo was judged, at the IWC 2010, the Champion Sake, out of over 400 sakes judged blind. What an outstanding achievement for a small brewery with just 5 employees. The International Wine Challenge has a sake component & is the largest sake competition outside Japan.

 

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 Daiginjo 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.
