Kikusui sake rice (father of the renowned Gohyakumangoku sake rice) had been all but lost to the world for half a century… that is until Kikusui Sake Company stepped in. They spearheaded the effort to revive this ancient strain from only 25 grains, and now attempt to pay homage to its legacy of elegance.

After they gently and methodically polished away the outer 60% of the rice grains, their brewers set to work and were rewarded with a pure, mellow aroma. The flavor is affable and light, and carries itself deliberately over the pallet. It is bolstered by the complexities and natural dryness brought to the table by the ancient Kikusui sake rice. Enjoy slightly chilled for a rare drinking experience.
