This sake is made by the Marumoto Brewery, a national cultural landmark. Nicknamed nousan sakagura, “The Farmers’ Brewery” because the farmers who grow the rice also brew the sake. An estate-bottled sake, Chikurin is made from 100% Yamada Nishiki, the most famous variety of sake rice. Named “Otoro” after a local river, and also a nod to its luxurious and creamy mouthfeel. Situated in the Chugoku Area, which includes Hiroshima to the west and Tottori to the north, Okayama is known as the “Land of Sunshine,” because of its sunny and dry weather. Okayama is a rich agricultural region, producing Japan’s most famous peaches, and great strawberries and grapes.
Creamy lush texture, vibrant aromas of papaya, cherry and grape. Notes of ripe cantaloupe and fig, a juicy namazake.
