Daiginjo represents the finest of Japanese sake with a polishing rate of over 50%, revealing the heart of the grain, the niche of the sake's rich aromas. Gekkeikan Daiginjo Nama Tsume is surprisingly fruity and refreshing, dry in the mouth but delicate and subtle. Unpasteurized before bottling, it expresses notes of green apples and pears typical of the yeast specially created by the brewery.
Gekkeikan Daiginjo Nama Tsume is ideal for those who wish to be introduced to the pleasures of daiginjo, and will accompany Japanese or Italian cuisine, or seafood dishes. It also goes well with sushi, sashimi or fish dishes with white rather than red flesh and can be enjoyed chilled or at room temperature.

Founded in 1637 by the Okura family, Gekkeikan, which means laurel wreath in Japanese, is the oldest sake house in the Kyoto area.
Originally, Gekkeikan was just a liquor store located in the town of Fushimi. It wasn't until 1783 that sake making really began with the construction of the first brewery. After establishing its own sake brewing research laboratory in 1909, Gekkeikan has continuously improved and innovated, contributing to the development of Fushimi sake.
