ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Chiyonosono Shared Promise Junmai Sake
Chiyonosono Shared Promise Junmai Sake is a rich and dry Junmai-style sake. Soft, expansive texture with aromas of orange blossom. Straightforward, with a very subtle sweetness coddled in layers of subtle umami. 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-shu and Daiginjo-shu can also be considered as Junmai-shu if no alcohol is added to them.
About Chiyonosono Brewing Company
In 1896, Chiyonosono Brewing Company was founded by a prominent rice merchant in Yamaga City which prospered during the Edo period, next to a trade highway. The name Chiyonosono is a reference to the Imperial Court and the garden of eternity and instills the wish for eternal prosperity for the people. Today, they are particular about using Kumamoto yeast developed within the prefecture which isn’t overly expressive but has a nice balance of aroma and flavor. They aim for simple sake made from rice, with the right balance of brightness, depth, and ease of drinking to be the perfect accompaniment to your meal.
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-shu 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.
