About Miyakobijin Shuzo Yoigokochi Yuzu Saké
Miyakobijin Shuzo Yoigokochi Yuzu Saké is a yuzu citrus sake made with Gohyakumangoku rice. Using the slow ferment Yamahai method and brewed with yuzu juice, undiluted, unfiltered. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus, quite tart and slightly bitter, and present in both Japanese cooking, pastry, as well as alcoholic beverages. This beautiful example is made by Miyako Bijin, on the island of Awaji in the Seto Inland Sea, and is bursting with vibrant and tart citrus flavors, with just a small hint of sweetness to balance it out. Great on its own, we also like to mix it with sparkling water for a little bit of fizz.
About Miyakobijin Shuzo
Togi ‘Master Brewer’ Kunihiro Yamauchi leads Miyako-Bijn’s production of small-batch, quality-driven sake while honoring the traditions of the past. Located on Awaji Island–where according to Japanese mythology the country was born–Miyako-Bijn has been brewing since 1945. This ‘Yoigokochi Yuzu-Saki’ is a refreshing blend of unfiltered and additive-free pressed yuzu juice and Yamahai brewed extra dry sake. Yuzu is highly acidic and aromatic, with three times more vitamin C than lemons. This sake has some natural fruit pulp for a pleasant bright color.
