About Junmai-Ginjo

Junmai contains pure unadulterated sake and no brewer’s alcohol is added to it. No additional starch or sugar is added to the alcohol. Junmai uses Seimai Buai of a minimum of 70% of milled rice. This means that no more than 70% of the rice maintains its original size. Only about 30% of the rice grain has its outer layer removed. While there is no legal specification regarding the amount of milled rice in Junmai, brewers are required to mention this amount on the label. Junmai sake has a full and rich body. It has a higher acidic level as compared to some other types of sake. Its fragrance is not very prominent and is often served hot. Some other types of sake such as Ginjo and Daiginjo can also be considered as Junmai-shu if no alcohol is added to them.

The Ginjo is made with rice, of which 40% is milled, while 60% retains its original size. It has a wonderful aroma and has a delicate and light flavor.
