Quantity: Qty:

"Shirakawago Cloudy Junmai, undiluted without charcoaled" is Japan's richest unfiltered "nigorizake"" produced by a sake brewery specializing in nigorizake. This sake was originally produced for the local traditional "Doburoku Matsuri" festival, and it is one of the very few Junmai nigorizake in Japan that use around twice the amount of sake rice for brewing as compared to regular sake. This amount of sake rice is comparable to Daiginjo which use less than 50% polished rice, and the secret to its delicious flavors lies in its brewing process that uses only high-quality sake rice. By drawing on the production method of Doburoku, this sake's unfiltered quality gives it an exceptionally rich cloudiness, allowing you to savor its creamy flavor. This product of the highest quality gives you the chance to indulge in its rich content and the natural flavors of rice all year round. It can be served cold at a temperature of around 10℃, or on the rocks in the sweltering summer heat. It is the ideal sake for pairing with dishes containing powerful seasonings as well as baked goods.

[About "Shirakawago"]
Shirakawago" is a "gassho-zukuri" thatched-roof village that has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The brewery had received a request to produce "Doburoku," a sake that has been used at local festivals for around 1300 years, that can be sold all year round. This led to the creation of nigorizake which is similar in quality. The brand is committed to preserving the use of the best ingredients and the production method that brings out the flavors of nature, and aims to share the culture of nigorizake with the next generation.

濁酒に特化した酒造が醸し出す、日本一濃厚なにごり酒が「白川郷 にごり 純米 無濾過原酒」です。地元の伝統ある「どぶろく祭」にちなんで造られた本品は、一般的な清酒の約2倍もの酒米を贅沢に使った日本でも数少ない純米にごり酒です。これは酒米の使用量で比較すると精米50%以下の大吟醸に匹敵するもので、上質酒米のみで仕込んだ本品のおいしさの秘密がここにあります。どぶろくの製法を生かし、醪そのままのため、非常に濃いにごりで、クリーミーな味わいが楽しめます。中身の濃さと米のもつ自然のおいしさを、一年中安定した状態で味わえる究極の逸品です。10℃くらいに冷やしてそのままお飲みいただくか、真夏には氷を浮かべたロックも最高です。特に濃い味付けの料理や焼き物によく合います。
