SakeSelection2019 Gold

"Azumanofumoto Daiginjo (720ml)" is the Daiginjo made with "Yukimegami", a type of new sake rice people have long been waiting for that hails all the way from Yamagata Prefecture, and refined to a terrific 33%. "Yukimegami" is a Sake from the "Daiginjo & Junmai Daiginjo" class, and was developed in Yamagata Prefecture and registered in 2015. Daiginjo, which is known for its great aroma and refreshing sweetness, is made 100% of this special rice through manual squeezing in Tohoku, Yamagata Prefecture, a region rich in clear air, harsh cold during winter, and clean, copious water. In 2019, the Daiginjo won the gold prize in the "Annual Japan Sake Award" and silver prize in the "U.S. National Sake Appraisal", and is highly regarded both at home and overseas.
