Made with only Nagano Prefecture rice ground down to 59% of its original size and brewed using the traditional "Sakafuneshibori" method. This classic Tokubetsu Junmai is called "Imanishiki Tokubetsu-junmai, undiluted". "Sakafuneshibori" refers to the tradition of layering sake-making bags in long, thin sake casks and gently applying pressure. The sake squeezed out through this long and intensive process has a pure taste of Japanese sake, free from any off flavors. When you take a sip, the ginjo aroma is striking. The flavor has just the right balance of savory and tart notes from the rice, with a crisp and refreshing taste. The supple mouthfeel has the distinctive softness of junmai. This sake has a great reputation worldwide and has earned awards such as the silver medal in the newly-established "SAKE selection" category of the 2018 "Brussels International Competition" contest, a respected authority on wine.

About "Imanishiki"
The name "Imanishiki" comes from an ancestor of the sake brewer, who was an amateur sumo wrestling Yokozuna (Grand Champion) and used it as his wrestling stage name. This sake is brewed using traditional "Sakafuneshibori" combined with the latest technology using local sake rice grown on land blessed with the natural environment and good quality spring water of the Southern Alps.
