Description

Kikuizumi Hitosuji

The Kikuizumi Hitosuji Sparkling Junmai is a Sparkling sake made from "Sakemusashi" "Gohyakumangoku" sake rice from the Saitama Prefecture, refined down to 60% and brewed, and elaborated through secondary fermentation. By applying the secondary fermentation technique and the production method of champagne, we are able to elevate, in 8 years, the gas pressure level inside the bottle to that of champagne while removing the lees and achieving a transparent sake. This sake, with its rich flavor, stands in harmony next to both sweetness and sourness. The authentic flavor of the Japanese sake brings out the taste of the Japanese cuisine, while the refreshing fizz of the bubbles and the pleasing acidity favors French and Italian flavors. 

It has a refined pale golden colour which was enhanced through the techniques of brewing sake. The bubbles rise elegantly in a straight line in a glass when it is poured. It brings on a profound and elegant taste of sake.

Tips: As this sake has in-bottle secondary fermentation like champagne, it has high built-up pressure in the bottle. Please keep it cold in a refrigerator or iced water to prevent it from splashing before opening a cap. It is refreshing and tastes fantastic when chilled.
