|Spirits Style||Sparkling sake|
The ”Kikuizumi Hitosuji Sparkling Junmai " is a Sparkling sake made from "Sakemusashi" "Gohyakumangoku" sake rice from the Saitama Prefecture, refined down to 60% and brewed, and elaborated through secondary fermentation. By applying the secondary fermentation technique and the production method of champagne, we are able to elevate, in 8 years, the gas pressure level inside the bottle to that of champagne while removing the lees and achieving a transparent sake. This sake, with its rich flavor, stands in harmony next to both sweetness and sourness. The authentic flavor of the Japanese sake brings out the taste of the Japanese cuisine, while the refreshing fizz of the bubbles and the pleasing acidity favors French and Italian flavors. This is a beautiful and elegant beverage that produces a streak of bubbles when served and then shows its pale gold color.
The name of "Kikuizumi" carries the meaning of "Traditional Sake,It's aromatic like a chrysanthemum(Kiku) and clear like a spring(Izumi)". It is a smooth and refreshing local sake, made by hand according to the traditional methods and making the best use of the local natural features. We aim to create a beverage of a supporting quality, that heightens the food without standing on its way but still leaves a pleasant and surprising aftertaste.
