Taka Tokubetsu Junmai Jikagumi Namazake (720ml) 貴 特別純米 直汲み生酒

$70.00

Due to direct bottling after pressing, this sake has a refreshingly lively and effervescent quality followed by gentle and luscious, mouth coating umami. Towards the finish, a bright acidity forms an aftertaste that is sharp and clean cut.

Taka-san is fastidious with the bottling process, ensuring very minimal oxidative activity takes place in the bottle, preserving the freshness of the sake.

Nagayama Honke永山本家酒造場

Nagayama Honke was established in 1888 in Ube, Yamaguchi prefecture, at the bottom tip of Honshu Island. The current Kuramoto Takahiro Nagayama, fifth generation president and Toji, first joined the brewery in 2001 with the strong desire to transition to making only Junmai sake. However, at that time, 95% of the sake on the market was Aruten sake, sake with added brewer’s alcohol, and Junmai was not at all fashionable. Since that time, things have changed drastically, and for this we can thank intrepid individuals such as Mr. Takahiro Nagayama for his strong commitment to the pure form of sake.
