This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
Until brewmaster Miho Imada came along, Hattanso was an indigenous rice strain abandoned and forgotten. Imada was driven to revive this strain, convinced that it would be ideal for sake-making.
After years of cultivation, Fukucho (Forgotten Fortune) is the result. Turns out that this rice is so well suited to Imada’s vision that she uses a high rice polishing ratio of 75%, meaning she only mills 25% of the outer portion of the rice.
Hiroshima is known for its oysters and this sake is dubbed “the oyster sake” at Umami Mart. Happy shucking and sipping.
