International Wine Challenge (IWC)2012 Aged Sake Division Bronze

"Mizubasho Dessert Sake Kijoshu" is a Kijoshu brewed over seven long years from the Mizubasho brand that has been conceptualized as a sake intended to be enjoyed after meals. Positioned as a ""luxury sake comparable to noble rot wine,""Kijoshu is an extravagant sake that is made by replacing the water used as mashing water in the final stage of the three-stage sake-brewing process with sake. Aged for over five years in a cellar at subzero temperatures, you can enjoy a flavor reminiscent of ripe muskmelons as well as its intense umami and sweetness the moment you take a sip. The perfect accompaniment to cheese, foie gras, chocolate, and ice cream, this sake is something you will look forward to while relaxing after a meal.

We named this sake, brewed with pure natural water filtered in the land of Oze, "MIZUBASHO" after the beautiful flowers that thrive in the region. Using finest "Yamada Nishiki" sake rice or locally grown rice from Kawaba village to express the terroir, the sake reveals a fruity, gorgeous fragrance and a soft, gentle, elegant taste.

International Wine Challenge (IWC)2018 古酒部門 銅賞

「日本酒を食後に」というコンセプトのもと、7年もの歳月をかけて完成した水芭蕉ブランドの貴醸酒が「水芭蕉 Dessert Sake」です。貴醸酒とは、日本酒造りの三段仕込みのうち、最終段階の仕込み水を水ではなく日本酒に代えて仕込んだ贅沢な造りの酒です。「貴腐ワインに比較されるタイプの高級日本酒」と位置づけられています。氷温のセラーで5年以上熟成させた本品は、口に含んだ瞬間、完熟したマスクメロンのような香味が立ち、濃縮された旨味と甘味が感じられます。チーズやフォアグラ、チョコレートやアイスクリームと好相性です。食後のゆったりとした時間に楽しみたい日本酒です。
