Kikusui Kuramitsu Junmai Daiginjo is a very special sake that uses only the highest quality Uonumasan Koshi Hikari rice, which is considered a Niigata delicacy. It is carefully milled down to an astounding 23% of the original grain size and is transformed into sake by piecing together every fragment of wisdom and craft Kikusui Sake Company has gathered in the last 130 years. The gorgeous perfume-like Daiginjo aroma cradles your senses as you raise the glass to your lips, and the first sip is an experience of complete and utter refinement. Smooth, clean, and slightly sweet, it begins with an understated sophistication, and a note of nostalgia, and then becomes increasingly titillating with each progressive moment as it awakens your mouth, nose, and lungs. What is Kikusui Kuramitsu? The taste of triumph.

About Kikusui Sake Company

With 130 years of history on their shoulders, the Kikusui Sake Company of Niigata prefecture built themselves up from the bottom. The name “Kikusui” is a reference to a Noh theatre play, wherein the dew (Sui) from the petals of chrysanthemums (Kiku) grants eternal life. In 2004 they established the Kikusui Sake Research Institute in an effort to both raise the bar on the quality of their offerings and wrestle with concepts such as enjoyment of sake, and sake culture. They are proud to produce “Funaguchi” – Japan’s first commercially available Nama (unpasteurized) sake.
