Nihonsakari is established since 1889 in the city Nishinomiya of Hoyogo Prefecture. For more than 130 years, they have been passionately brewing sake with joy and with deep respect for nature, bringing together natural water, rice, koji and yeast, with techniques from the Tamba Master Brewers, to produce some of the highly regarded sake in Japan. Their reputation further cemented when they are officially appointed as suppliers of the Imperial Household.
Natural Water : Miyamizu, subsoil water from the Rokko mountain that springs out in Nishinomiya. Its mineral content makes it a key ingredient for superior, clean and crisp sake.
Rice : Yamada Nishiki and it’s also known as “the king of sake rice”. It has a large grain and ideal characteristics for sake brewing.
Koji : the mold that allows the conversion of starch into glucose, a necessary precondition for fermentation. At the same time, during this process, the enzymes inside koji produce the amino acids of sake.
Yeast : Uses different kinds (more than 600) of yeast in order to create the unmistakable aromas of our sakes. For most of our sake we use our original yeast, that exists only inside the Sakari brewery.
Thanks to the right balance of Junmai Daiginjo, non-pasteurization (Nama) and original yeast, this sake contains rich flavour of rice and fresh fruity aroma (Ginjo-ka). This fresh fruity aroma is generated by Nihonsakari’s original yeast.
This is a very surprising sake with fresh tropical aromas with a hint of Persimmon. Due to a high tech enzyme filter, it can be kept at room temperature without spoilage. Excellent value for money. Previously Known as "Nihonsakari Junmai Daiginjo Namazake".Reviews / Awards:
