Hyogo is the most famous area in Japan for sake rice, with their high grade Yamada Nishiki sought out by makers around the country for their highest end items. When local breweries craft sake from high grade Yamada Nishiki they typically learn into the large, rich and enveloping fruit flavors possibly with the “king of sake rice.” Despite using incredibly sought after rice from Yokowa, Banshu Ikkon’s high grade Junmai Daiginjo is a sake of restraint and delicacy. The light fruit flavors lean more quiet and welcoming than bright and loud. Beautiful with food but also a fine sake of contemplation.

  • Made from the top Yamada Nishiki sake rice from Yokowa, giving definition and transparency to the sake.
  • Aromas of underripe melon moving into clearly defined tropical flavors of dragonfruit and lychee.
  • An excellent complement to slices of toro fatty tuna, beef carpaccio or wagyu beef tataki.
