This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
The Kirakucho chokarakuchi (extra dry) junmai ginjo is Kita Brewery's most popular sake. They wanted to make a sake that was dry, but still had koku (richness). It boasts an impressive +14 for the SMV, meaning that on paper, it’s super dry yet it doesn’t leave behind a stinging feeling in your throat.
This sake seems to represent the Kita Brewery’s mantra of: "Making sakes that have koku and kire (clean ending)." Despite it being a junmai ginjo, it's quite light on the fruity and floral. It has a sturdy porridge-like aroma upon entry, but ends satisfyingly dry. The daughter/father duo who works at the brewery agree that this high acidity sake is great chilled with raw squid, yakiniku, and simmered meats.
