Once referred to as the king of rice for sake brewing, the legendary "Omachi" has now been brought back and polished to 38% before brewing to create "Sakehitosuji Akaiwaomachi Gold Junmai-daiginjo", the pinnacle of sake in the "Sakehitosuji" brand. The taste of sake is decided by the rice used to brew it. Omachi rice has large grains with sizeable cores, and koji bacteria takes well to it, which is why it is regarded as the ultimate rice for making sake, but it is difficult to grow, which lead to dwindling production. For a time it faded to legend until "Omachi" rice was brought back again by this brewery and polished generously to create this sake, filled with the flavor of the rice. At the "International Wine Challenge (IWC)2019", the highest judging authority on wines in the world, the brand was honored with a trophy as the top brand among recipients for the gold medal for Junmai Daiginjo, making it truly one of the top Junmai Ginjo in the world.

[About "Sakehitosuji"]
Using local rice and water, and fermented with the natural climate of the region, this sake shows the true possibilities of local sake. By reviving the legendary Omachi rice from the local Okayama region, and generously polishing it, they have created the Sake Issetsu brand. It has a well-rounded and elegant taste.

かつて「酒米の帝王」と呼ばれた幻の酒米「雄町」を復活させ、38%まで磨き上げて醸した、酒一筋ブランド最高峰の日本酒が「酒一筋 赤磐雄町 ゴールド 純米大吟醸」です。日本酒の旨さは、原料米で決まります。雄町は大粒で心白が大きく軟質で麹のはぜこみが大変良く、酒米の最高峰と言われていましたが、栽培の難しさから生産量が激減。一時は幻の酒米となった雄町を当蔵が復活させ、それを贅沢に磨いて造った本品は、米のふくよかな旨味が堪能できる酒です。世界最高権威を誇るワイン品評会「インターナショナル・ワイン・チャレンジ2019」では、純米大吟醸部門金メダル受賞酒の中で最も優れた1銘柄に贈られるトロフィー賞を見事に獲得した、まさに世界トップクラスを誇る純米吟醸酒です。
