Azakura Mistonishiki Junmai Ginjo

This sake is all about Akita Prefecture! Brewed using a locally developed yeast, and the brewery's own well water, as well as with Misato Nishiki sake rice - a hybrid of two famed varietals Yamada Nishiki and Miyama Nishiki developed by the Akita Prefectural Agriculture Research Center in the early 2000s. Soft on the palate, full-bodied, and semi-dry, this sake pairs well with a wide range of Japanese and western foods, and boasts a flamboyant melon aroma.

Brewery Profile:
Azakura has been using good water and specially selected sake rice. The brewery has a strong fan base within the prefecture and outside as well. They have been using new types of yeast and rice to improve their quality. Their sake tends to have solid umami and a clean aftertaste. By changing the sake rice, the difference is quite noticeable, especially with the products above Junmai having juicy and fruity flavors.
