Kameizumi Junmai Daiginjo Namazake is the premium sake of the small craft brewery Kameizumi Shuzo established for over a century on the island of Shikoku.
Its 50% polishing rate that reaches the heart of the rice grain and the use of precious yamada nishiki sake rice contribute to the creation of a complex and deep flavor profile. This highly fragrant sake has hints of bitterness when freshly made, but after 1 year of low temperature aging at the brewery, this bitterness is replaced by a smoother, richer mouth feel.
Particularly suited to accompany vegetable-based dishes, Kameizumi Junmai Daiginjo Namazake can also be used as an aperitif with an original Japanese touch.
Located between the mountains and the ocean, the small Kameizumi Shuzo brewery was founded in 1897 in the picturesque village of Tosa, Kochi Prefecture, on the island of Shikoku, the smallest of the four main islands in the Japanese archipelago. The sake is brewed with water from the "Ten Thousand Year Spring" which is said to have never dried out since the 1600s. The climate of the region being rather hot and humid, the brewery faces not really optimal conditions for the fermentation of rice, which requires a lot of courage and a great knowledge from the 5 craftsmen of this small brewery.
