This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
This small batch, tank-strength, uncharcoal-filtered junmai is brewed using local yeast and bottled from a single tank. You will find notes of tart yogurt, mushroom, and earthy honey. Try paired with rich dishes like al pastor, mapo tofu or a charbroiled rack of lamb. Izumi-san of Manatsuru Brewery told us that, “The design of the red circle is the kanji for yamahai, swirling around in a circle – an abstract depiction of the enzymatic conversions happening in the yeast starter during the use of this technique. We use dark, black bottles whenever possible for the added protection from light damage.”
