Kura Master2019 Junmai Daiginjo Division Gold

Once known as the emperor of sake rice, production of ""Omachi"" has been revived, and the Junmai-daiginjo made from the kernel polished to 40% is Sakehitosuji Akaiwaomachi Junmai-daiginjo. The Karube area of Okayama prefecture where this brewery is located has long been known for Omachi rice. This 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. This sake is made from the generously polished grain of that rice, and you can enjoy the mouth-filling round taste of the Omachi. At the most authoritative Japanese Sake Competition in France, the ""KURA MASTER 2019"", it was selected for the gold medal in the Junmai Daiginjo sake category, and it is a Junmai-daiginjo highly regarded throughout the world.

[About "Sakehitosuji"]

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.

Kura Master2019 純米大吟醸部門 金賞

かつて「酒米の帝王」と呼ばれた幻の酒米「雄町」を復活させ、40%まで磨き上げて醸した純米大吟醸が「酒一筋 赤磐雄町 純米大吟醸」です。当蔵のある岡山県の「軽部」は、昔から雄町の名産地として知られていました。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た雄町でしたが、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地元産の原料にこだわる当蔵が復活させました。それを贅沢に磨いて造った本品は、口中で広がる雄町米ならではのふくよかな旨味が楽しめます。フランスにおける最も権威ある日本酒コンクール「KURA MASTER 2019」純米大吟醸酒部門で金賞に選ばれるなど、世界的に高く評価されている純米大吟醸です。
