Katsuyama has it's roots in brewing sake for feudal lords, including a renowned samurai, Date Masamune. Now, the brewery's lord-worthy range of sake includes this expert Junmai Ginjo. It is slightly heavier and drier, which mixes to create a bold flavor, and just a hint of sweetness. Next time you're pouring a glass of the Katsuyama Ken remember to make a toast to the lords of old.
Won the Second Grand Prix award at the U.S. National Sake Appraisal in 2019—the oldest sake appraisal conducted outside Japan—for its high acclaim in the Ginjo category out of 204 participating breweries and 512 entries.
