This sake is a perfect example of a jizake (local sake) that embodies Miyagi. With the clean elegance famous to Miyagi, the current owner Iwao Niizawa keeps this traditional brew that his father created in the lineup for the locals. This slightly golden sake has a pleasant aroma of honeysuckle and finishes dry. Niizawa likes to stay away from flashy, trendy flavors, brewing what he calls “ultimate food sakes” that have crisp acidity and herbal notes that pair with a range of foods. Try slightly warm with oysters and Katei Gyutan Yaki.
