Kitaya Sake Junmai Dai-Ginjo Kitaya 720ml

Cold Mountain Water

A Dou¬≠ble Gold Awardee at the San Fran¬≠cis¬≠co Inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Wine Com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠tion, Kansan¬≠sui Jun¬≠mai Daig¬≠in¬≠jo is made of the finest Yama¬≠da Nishi¬≠ki and Yume Ikkon grains pol¬≠ished to 45%, brewed using the tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al daig¬≠in¬≠jo brew¬≠ing tech¬≠nique, the Shizukushi¬≠bori method. By drip-press¬≠ing the pol¬≠ished grains, this time-hon¬≠oured process evokes a mel¬≠low and clean flavour unlike that of machine pressed sakes.


Tak­ing its name from the cold moun­tain water used to brew this sake, Kansan­sui Jun­mai Daig­in­jo is made of high-grade Yama­da Nishi­ki and Yume Ikkon grains pol­ished to 45% and the cold moun­tain waters of the Yabe Riv­er sit­u­at­ed in the Yama region.

A del¬≠i¬≠cate and crisp sake with a fruity nose, Kansan¬≠sui Jun¬≠mai Daig¬≠in¬≠jo is round and smooth, with a bal¬≠anced sweet¬≠ness. On the palate, hon¬≠eyed flavours of lychee, sum¬≠mer pear, and mel¬≠ons are trailed by sub¬≠tle notes of creamy rice.


As with all pre¬≠mi¬≠um sakes clas¬≠si¬≠fied as jun¬≠mai gin¬≠jo and jun¬≠mai daig¬≠in¬≠jo (big gin¬≠jo), enjoy Kansan¬≠sui Jun¬≠mai Daig¬≠in¬≠jo chilled. The clean and crisp taste of Kansan¬≠sui Jun¬≠mai Daig¬≠in¬≠jo is a heav¬≠en sent match with tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al sushi and sashi¬≠mi. How¬≠ev¬≠er, this sake pairs well with any light dish¬≠es with a clean after¬≠taste such as a carpac¬≠cio, avo¬≠ca¬≠do or seafood salads.


Nes¬≠tled in the beau¬≠ti¬≠ful moun¬≠tain¬≠side of the Tsukushi plains, Kitaya was found¬≠ed 190 years ago dur¬≠ing the Bun¬≠sei Era (1818‚ąí1830) in Yame City in the Fukuo¬≠ka Prefecture.

With a per¬≠se¬≠ver¬≠ing pas¬≠sion to pro¬≠vide top shelf daig¬≠in¬≠jo and jun¬≠mai sakes span¬≠ning 7 gen¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tions of mas¬≠ter brew¬≠ers, Kitaya‚Äôs com¬≠mit¬≠ment to wual¬≠i¬≠ty echoes in its busi¬≠ness phi¬≠los¬≠o¬≠phy. The three japan¬≠ese char¬≠ac¬≠ters with¬≠in the word ‚Äč‚ÄúKitaya‚ÄĚ reads as ‚Äč‚ÄúJoy‚ÄĚ, ‚Äč‚ÄúMany‚ÄĚ and ‚Äč‚ÄúHomes,‚ÄĚ a dai¬≠ly reminder of Kitaya‚Äôs unwa¬≠ver¬≠ing phi¬≠los¬≠o¬≠phy to won¬≠der¬≠ful bot¬≠tles that spread joy, one sake at a time.
