Kujira純米 山田錦 80 無濾過生原酒純米原酒生酒無濾過

カープ君
Shinomine by Nara's Chiyo Shuzo is well known, but this Kushira is brewed only with Yamadanishiki, which is grown in-house without pesticides. 80% polished rice gives it a slightly dry taste with plenty of rice flavor, and while Shinomine is delicious, this sake has a different taste.

Purchased at a commercial supermarket, a bottle costs just over 1,800 yen. This sake is made by a small sake brewery in Ikoma City, Nara Prefecture. It has a refreshing taste and goes well with any meal. On its own, the sake may be a little lacking. When heated, its acidity and spiciness stand out. It is easier to drink cold and tastes better.
