ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
Plum-forward aromas, but very natural; in the mouth, there's the distinctive plum skin tartness and fills the mouth with sweet fruit flavor, but delicate and still keeping its freshness. Long finish with a salty, mineral tang.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Seimaibuai rice that has been polished to 65%.
Great with strongly-flavored dishes; Chinese food or braised meats go well with umeshu. Also goes great with umami-forward snacks, like cheese, nuts and beef jerky.
Oh, let me count the ways—chilled, straight, on the rocks, with soda water; there's almost no wrong way to enjoy it. People also enjoy it with a splash of hot water when it gets cold out. Enjoy in a wine glass or whiskey glass.

Founded in 1912, Kamoizumi Shuzō Brewery is one of the newer breweries in the famed sake-making region Saijo. During the late 1960s, when almost all sakes available on the market were sanzo-shu, sake that is fortified with brewer's alcohol (distilled alcohol), Kamoizumi Shuzō Brewery pioneered junmai brewing techniques by created a traditional junmai sake made only with rice and rice koji. It was also common practice during this time to filter the pressed sake through charcoal to remove any impurities to attain a pure and colorless sake, the aesthetic ideal of the times.
