(Shizukuzake: Fermented rice solids are generally pressed to yield clear, fresh sake out of it. For shizukuzake, instead of applying pressure, this process is done by putting the fermented rice in burlap bags and hanging them, letting time and gravity do its work by naturally dripping-filtering out precious drops collected into a jug placed below.) Fruity with an exquisite, balanced finish. (Normally, delivery is made 1-2 months after receipt of order. ) 2019 Kura Master Gold in Junmai Daiginjo Division, Bronze in International Wine Challenge, Sake Division.

SERVING

Best served chilled, room temp in a white wine glass or champagne tulip glass.

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.
