Shichiken Junmai Ginjo

Yamanashi Meijo Brewery

From the town of Hakushu, where some of the best-quality water in Japan comes from, this junmai ginjo sake was brewed using the underground water flowing from Minami-Alps' Mt.Kaikoma.

This crisp and lively ginjo tastes like the beginning of autumn, when you first feel that nip in the air. Its freshness is typical of this brewery, thanks to the long and low temperature ferment method. Fresh, mineral, and light with a smooth aftertaste that will keep you coming back for more. A traditional junmai ginjo in the sense that this is very flavor-focused.

In 1750, 1st generation Ibei Nakaya branched out from the Kitahara family in Shinshu Takato (slighty northwest of Hokuto) to start his own brewing company. He based himself in Hakushu, falling in love with the water quality there. Today, several major companies have set up whiskey and mineral water factories, making Hokuto the biggest mineral water producer in Japan. The name Shichiken comes from the title of a fanlight (a celebratory gift from a feudal lord for a building inauguration at the brewery), "Seven Sages in a Bamboo Grove." Shichiken means Seven Sages.
