"MIZUBASHO PURE Sparkling" is authentic Sparkling sake made with the traditional secondary fermentation sake brewing method and using "Yamada Nishiki", the king of sake rice varieties. As this sake is bottled with cloudiness from the fermentation process remaining, the brewer carefully watches the progress of fermentation, and took great pains in technological development to remove the sediment and make the sake clear. Ten years after the initial concept, and after hundreds of trial-and-error attempts, a fine sparkling sake with fine carbonation and no sediment was born in 2008. With flavors of cherry and lychee, its silky carbonation envelops foods like a fairy spirit. Since its launch, the sake has been adopted by restaurants around the world to adorn the start of wonderful courses, including at three-star restaurants in France and elsewhere in Europe. The brewer has further demonstrated that it does not use the animal-derived gelatin that is sometimes a part of the typical sake brewing process, and has obtained vegan certification, a rarity for sake. This sparkling sake is recognized by the world's top chefs and enjoyed by a wide range of people.

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.

伝統的な日本酒製法に瓶内二次発酵を取り入れ、酒米の王様「山田錦」を使用して醸した本格的なスパークリング清酒が「MIZUBASHO PURE Sparkling」です。発酵途中のにごりを残した状態で瓶詰めするため、発酵の進み具合の見極めや、澱を除いて透明にする技術開発に腐心しました。構想から10年、数百回にも及ぶ試行錯誤を経て、2008年に繊細な泡と、沈殿物が全くない澄んだ発泡清酒が誕生したのです。チェリーやライチの香味を持ち、シルキーな泡が妖精のように料理を包み込みます。発売以来、フランス等ヨーロッパの三ツ星レストランをはじめ、世界各国のレストランに採用され、素晴らしいコース料理のスタートを彩っています。また、一般的な日本酒の醸造過程で使用することがある動物由来のゼラチンを使っていないことを証明し、日本酒ではめずらしい「ヴィーガン認証」を得ました。世界のトップシェフたちが認めた、幅広い層が楽しめるスパークリング清酒です。
