Sempuku Mori Junmai Ginjo is a "pure rice" sake produced by the Miyake Honten brewery founded in 1856 by the Miyake family in the Hiroshima area.
Made from three ingredients, rice, koji, and water, this premium sake has a perfect balance between sweetness and umami, the fifth taste associated with Japanese cuisine. Its rich and complex flavor profile expresses first fruity aromas of ripe melon, then floral notes of lily and wisteria, all wrapped in a gourmet texture with rice flavors typical of ginjo sake.
This Sempuku sake was created as part of a project called Sengoku Arcadia, a series of 47 sakes paying tribute to the famous warriors of the 47 provinces of medieval Japan. The label features the warlord Mōri Motonari, renowned for his wisdom, whose illustration was entrusted to the famous manga artist Leiji Matsumoto, creator of Albator and Galaxy Express 999, among others.

Brewery Miyake Honten - Sempuku
Founded by Kiyochichi Miyake in 1856 in Kure in the Hiroshima region, Miyake Honten was originally specialized in the production of alcoholic beverages such as mirin (culinary sweet sake), shirozake (low-alcohol sweet sake), and shochu (traditional spirit made from sweet potato, rice and other ingredients). It was not until 1902 that the company started to produce sake.
Established in a region rich in naval industry, the brewery's sake was selected to supply the Japanese army's warships at the end of the 1920s, which allowed Miyake Honten to acquire a great reputation throughout the archipelago.
