Taste

Fresh and clear taste suggestive of fruits

Even before drinking it, you may notice the gently drifting, elegant aroma. Once you sip it, the fresh and beautiful taste like a seasonal fruit such as a sugar-cored apple spreads in your mouth. As the temperature of sake rises while you keep having it, UMAMI (rich flavor of rice) spreads in your mouth, leaving a long-lasting lovely aftertaste. This fine sake with an elegant label accented with the golden logo is a perfect accompaniment for your special day.

Concept

The highest grade sake brewed by using all the bounty from the land.

The temperature in Ninohe city, which is in the Tohoku region of Japan, drops to -15℃ at the coldest time. Fully utilizing the local climate "Ninohe Terroir," this special sake is only prepared in December and January, the coldest time of the year, which is the best time for sake making. This is the highest-grade of Nanbu Bijin that is brewed with the unsurpassable skills of Nanbu Bijin at present, developed over many years. Sake packaged in a beautiful box is ideal as a gift.

Brewing method

The sake rice used for this sake is 35% polished, which is the most polished rice of Nanbu Bijin ingredients, and handling this type of rice during production is sensitive work. We pay special attention when we produce this sake. Eliminating machinery handling as much as possible, we strive to preserve our traditional hand-manufacturing method by using our hands, so that we can reflect our spirit in the sake. This is our specialty sake that is only prepared in December and January every year.

Rice

We use 35% polished "Yamada Nishiki," known as the king of sake rice. Yamada Nishiki is used to produce rich-flavored and clean-tasting sake. Among Yamada Nishiki rice, we use a variety produced in Hyogo Prefecture, which is the highest grade, by careful selection. Also, we use subsoil water from Orizumebasenkyo for preparation of our sake, in order to produce a profound taste from medium hard water.

Quickness, from squeezing to storing

Not only this Junmai Daiginjo, but all specially named Nanbu Bijin are bottled and pasteurized within a week from pressing, then stored at -5℃. We quickly complete this series of processes within a week in order to maintain the freshness of the sake for a long time. This is the secret of our sake that can impress people with its lively taste. Enjoy the fresh and vibrant taste.

Certification

Nanbu Bijin products are exported to 54 countries and regions, attracting many fans all over the world. We obtained Kosher certification for sake, which indicates that it is not prohibited under Jewish precepts, in 2013, and vegan certification for all our products both domestically and internationally in 2019 (International certification: The Vegan Society). In addition, we acquired Non-GMO certification, proving that our ingredients are not genetically modified. We actively engage in food diversity.

Brewer's recommendations

Brewer's recommendations

The fruity taste changes into the rich flavor of rice as the temperature of the sake rises.

Enjoy the rich aroma and fresh taste in a thin glass at a temperature of 5℃ to 15℃.
This sake goes very well with many types of dishes. We most recommend flounder or snapper sashimi, kelp marinated white fish and soba noodles.
