In 1905, the brand name Gekkeikan (meaning "crown of laurel") was adopted as the company's formal pledge to excellence. Through this commitment, the company became a true leader in the industry and pioneered a number of research and development efforts. The successful results of these endeavors have enabled Gekkeikan to become one of the nation's most popular brands.
While 65% of the sake market is made using much less expensive table rice, this premium bottle is made of 100% Yamadanishiki rice. The difference is that sake rice has lesser fats and protein contents but more starch contents compared to table rice. And this difference is key in producing premium sakes.
