TOYO BIJIN Junmai Daiginjo Ichibanmatoi
東洋美人 壱番纏 純米大吟醸
This Junmai Daiginjo, which has rarely been available in Japan since the devastating 2013 landslide disaster, is back in limited quantities and was served at the Japan-Russia summit meeting held in Yamaguchi Prefecture at the end of 2016. The clear taste and elegant, sparkling ginjo aroma are produced by polishing up to 40% Yamada-Nishiki and fermenting at a low temperature for a long period of time. It is a Junmai Daiginjo that truly lives up to its name, Ichiban.
