Founded in 1903, the Saiya Brewery is one of the most award-winning breweries at the Japanese National Sake Competition. Located in the snowy region of Akita, in the past fifteen years of the competition, the brewery has won an astonishing ten gold medals. Mr. Takahashi, their brewmaster, has been recognized by the Emperor of Japan as a cherished craftsman.
This Junmai Daiginjo is super-layered, elegant, and deep. Made using both locally grown Akita Komachi sake rice and top class Yamada Nishiki rice from Hyogo. In keeping with Saiya’s house standards, this Junmai Daiginjo is also genshu, muroka and features their proprietary yeast.
At once earthy, rustic, elegant and fruity. This daiginjo shows notes of overipe peach and roasted sage in the finish.
