"Shirakawago Cloudy Junmai, unpasteurized undiluted without charcoaled" is Japan's richest unfiltered "nigorizake" produced by a sake brewery specializing in nigorizake by directly bottling the sake and storing it at temperatures below 0℃ to impede fermentation. 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. Additionally, as this sake is unpasteurized, its lively taste profile is reminiscent of freshly-brewed sake and allows you to enjoy its creamy and pure sweetness as well as its pleasant and subtle sparkling texture. This sake can be served cold as it is, 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を生のまま瓶詰めし、0℃以下で貯蔵して発酵を静めた酒が「白川郷 にごり 純米 無濾過生原酒」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。しかも火入れ処理をしていないため、できたての生のフレッシュな風味があり、クリーミーで純な甘味と心地良い微発泡感を味わうことができます。よく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。
