ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Afuri Ohana Junmai Muroka Nama

Afuri Ohana Junmai Muroka Nama is made with yeast derived from a rose flower. It looks cherry colored from the yeast but it smells like cherries too. It’s creamy and packed with umami from the cold lactic fermentation (Kimoto) and the super geeky Hyogo-grown Aiyama rice is only polished to 90%. Then the rose flower yeast adds a layer of refreshing acidity and a hint of sweetness.

About Kikkawa Jozo

The Afuri series from Kikkawa Jozo is brewed with water from a rain-fed spring at the foot of Mount Afuri in Kanagawa. It is naturally harder than typical sake brewing water at 150ppm in equal parts Calcium and Magnesium. These nutrients allow for extremely low-temperature fermentation to develop extra complexity.

Founded in 1912, Kikkawa once made rich and dry sake. The 7th generation chief brewer Masanori Mizuno took over in 2012 changing focus to a complex, robust, and aromatic style balanced by ancient acid production techniques.
