Using Sake Yeast R-5, which was first isolated in the Akita Prefecture Jozo Shikenjo (Brewing Research Center), this sake has gorgeous melon and apples notes, with a full body and semi-sweet flavor that is perfect for before or after the main course of a traditional Japanese meal. It will also match easily with many western dishes.

Brewery Profile:

Okuda Shuzo is the third oldest brewery established in Akita prefecture and exports the smallest amount of sake leaving Akita prefecture (based on 2015 shipment data); this allows them the flexibility and time to develop their skills and painstaking attention to detail which maintain the highest standards of Sake-brewing. Particularly popular are their Junmai Ginjo Genshu and Sake that made with modern, proprietary yeasts.
