Product details

This beautiful Junmai Ginjo is aged for a minimum of 3 years in Hakkai Brewery’s snow-storage room, called the Yukimuro. The flavor is initially subdued, before it unfolds into the rich and solid sake that it is. While nestled comfortably in tanks chilled by literal tons of pure white snow, it develops into a round and smooth sake with a subtle and fine aroma and a mellow, dry finish.

The Hakkaisan Yukimuro is a facility where winter snow is stored and is used as a natural refrigerator to keep food fresh during the summer time. Since ancient times, people have used snow to store things, and it appears in the “Nihon Shoki”, the oldest writings in Japan from the Nara era (710~794). The Yukimuro is usually divided into two side by side spaces; snow piled up on one side, and sake tanks and food items directly next to it. No electricity is used for Yukimuro storage. The natural cold air coming off of the snow alone is what does the chilling. It is an environmentally friendly food storage system developed through the wisdom of living in snow country from ancient times.
