Akitora Omachi 82% Junmai is produced using Omachi rice from Okayama Prefecture deliberately polished just to 82%. This rice was once considered so challenging to cultivate that it was described as the "phantom rice," but has a loyal following among sake aficionados. The higher nutrient content in the rice and the ease of fermentation allow for this brew to be produced under careful temperature control and traditional sake casks within 4-5 days. Being an unfiltered sake, this brew has the complexities of the aroma and boldness of the flavor on full display. While a strong fermentation process can cause a dry sake, this junmai sake is unique in that, unlike smooth and refreshing dry sake, it is a more flavorful dry, with the full flavor profile of the rice on display. As with a bottle of wine, this sake can be allowed to further develop by leaving it open at room temperature for between 1 to 12 hours. This innovative new sake, the result of careful research and testing into the possibilities of small quantity fermentation, will surprise and delight you.

About "Akitora"
This sake is named after Kunitora Aki, a Sengoku period warlord who ruled over the Aki region. Made with clear and cool soft water from the Akano River, this junmai sake is prepared with care in small quantities to produce a brew with a gentle flavor and modest body. This sake brings a tart note and depth of flavor that will hold their own when paired with other dishes.
