This refined junmai daiginjo sake is made using an ultra-soft water with a hardness level of 14. It suggests the vivid aroma of pears and fruit. In the mouth, it blooms into a fragrant bouquet throughout the nose. Using soft water for the brew allows for creating a smooth and soft sake that amply brings out the umami of the rice. This brew is ideal as a pre-meal aperitif and lends a relaxing and gentle mood to any occasion.

Suishin Yamane Honten
Brewery located in Chugoku-Shikoku
Suishin was founded in 1860.
We are the only sake brewery in Mihara, Hiroshima, an area long recognized as being ideal for sake production. Our brews are also well-known for having been a lifelong favorite of famed Japanese painter Taikan Yokoyama.
Suishin is committed to producing unique soft water brews made from water with a soft mineral content that is seldom available.
The resulting sake is very fine, with a smooth umami, and it has been steadily garnering accolades at various expos and conferences.
