Hakuryu: A History of Excellence

Hakuryu - Daiginjo SAKE

Hakuryu
  • 22 Consecutive Monde Selection Gold Awards(1997-2018)

Accolades

  • - Monde Selection, Gold Award (1997-2018)

Niigata Prefecture's very own Hakuryu Shuzo brewery remains consistently among Japan's elite producers with their signature SAKE. The brewery's use of high-quality Koshi Tanrei rimmce and underground water sourced from Agano-fukuryuusui yields a wonderfully aromatic Daiginjo with hints of umami. This SAKE is ideal as an aperitif, but also pairs well with dishes that are light in flavor. Serve chilled for a delicious SAKE tasting experience!

Kinshi Masamune: The Gold Medal Standard

Kinshi Masamune - Junmai Ginjo SAKE

Kinshi Masamune
  • Anuga Wine Special, Gold Award (2017)
  • U.S. National SAKE Appraisal, Gold Medal (2015)

Accolades

  • - Anuga Wine Special, Gold Award (2017)
  • - U.S. National SAKE Appraisal, Gold Medal (2015)

This SAKE is wrapped in gold for a reason. Kyoto-based Kinshi Masamune brewery's namesake Junmai Ginjo is meticulously fermented at low temperatures to produce a bright, slightly sweet aromatic SAKE. Its creamy fragrance is thanks to the use of Kyoto's special Iwai brewer's rice. We suggest pairing the wonderfully crisp and elegant flavor with spicy dishes. Kinishi Masamune Junmai Ginjo is best served chilled, preferably from a glass to enjoy the well-rounded bouquet.
