Tasting Notes from Sake School of America Specialist:
A moderate bouquet of yellow peach, cooked apple, and earthy shiitake. Fine and refreshing bubbles greet you at entrance, expanding into a cushiony texture and juicy acidity. Blood orange, floral honey, and pine nut flavors lead into a lingering finish. Hitosuji Sparkling enhances the savoriness of Japanese cuisine, while the fresh acidity enhances Mediterranean cuisine.
Takizawa Brewing Company (Kikuizumi) was founded in 1863 in Ogawa-machi in Saitama prefecture, and relocated in 1900 to their current location on the Old Nakasendo trading route's Fukaya-juku waypoint. In 2007, Hideyuki Takizawa, the sixth generation head of the brewery, studied the brewing techniques of the previous Toji (master brewer) of the Nanbu Toji school, and became a Toji himself. With the traditions handed down from generation to generation as its foundation, the brewery continues to take on new challenges by incorporating new ideas and technologies.
