SHICHI HON YARI SHIZUKU JUNMAI DAIGINJO SAKE 500mL
Crafted by a small brewery in a little town called Kinomoto, Shichi Hon Yari Shizuku is made with a local rice called Tamazakae, Shiga-ken’s indigenous sakamai. The Tomita’s and their farmers use mineral water which runs from the nearby Ibuki mountains down to their village. This water is so suited for sake making that they use it as is, without being filtered. The rice is polished way down and then fermented even slower than normal and collected drop by drop after fermentation. Shichi Hon Yari sake can best be described as light, approachable, smokey, dry, and well-balanced that is the perfect match for a steak dinner or some stuffed pork chops. Because the brewers don’t press the sake, only a small amount of sake is gleaned from each batch, making availability limited.
