Awards
Sake Competition2018 Junmai Division Gold

Zao K Junmai (720ml) is a Junmai produced by young, talented brewers who had received critical acclaim at the world's largest sake competition using "Toyo-nishiki" rice with a polishing ratio of 65% instead of regular sake-brewing rice cultivars. Before the most famous sake-brewing cultivar "Yamada-nishiki" found its way into Miyagi prefecture, sake brewed by this brewery using "Toyo-nishiki" had been awarded first place in nationwide sake competitions, which made this rice the natural choice of cultivar to revive. This Junmai brewed from "Toyo-nishiki" using the fresh underground water of the Zao Mountains ensures that the refreshing acidity of the sake is accompanied by delicate hints of umami from the rice. With its rice-based umami notes and a pleasant aftertaste, this well-balanced sake is suited to be served during meals. At the「SAKE COMPETITION 2018」 where the world's best Japanese sake is crowned, this sake won the Diners Club Young Talent's Award which is presented to production representatives below the age of 40 and came in third in the Junmai GOLD division. This is a sake created by young brewers that remains highly regarded around the world.
