Awards
London Sake Challenge2019 Junmai Ginjo Division Platinum

"Katsuyama Lei Junmai-ginjo, undiluted (720ml)" is a Japanese sake that is specially produced using local rice and water sourced from Sendai Prefecture. It is carefully made by using the traditional "fukuro shibori" method - wherein the sake is refined by the means of filling the raw liquor into sacks and allowing its effluvient to seep out naturally. The sake has a deep, sweet taste to it, and the delicate and reassuring fragrance of muskmelon. It brings out the rich "umami" flavors of rice and is given a low-grade alcohol finish. By raising its content of amino acids - an element of the "umami" compound - this sake is the perfect accompaniment to food dishes: it goes well with well-seasoned dishes; meats that are covered in rich sauces; and aperitifs and desserts. In the "London Sake Challenge 2019" - the oldest Japanese sake competition in Europe - wine sommeliers from around the world evaluated Japanese sake, and the "Katsuyama Rei" was awarded the top platinum prize in the "Junmai Ginjo" division. As such, it is a Junmai Ginjo that is highly valued upon international standards.

About "Katsuyama"
Japanese sake "Katsuyama" inherits a tradition that has been established for more than 320 years. It is rumored that the origin of the name lies in the superstition that samurai won victories in heaps, and is associated with the "Katsuyama Chignon", a fashionable women's hairstyle in the early Edo period (17th century). It is a full-bodied sake made through a slow and luxurious preparation that involves producing only 1 tank per week, where the moromi (a mash of barley, barley koji, yeat and water) is carefully fermented.
