ZAKU Junmai Daiginjo Shizuku "Satori"
作 智 純米大吟醸 滴取り
Elegant Junmai Daiginjo that was choosen as the Kanpai sake at the G7 Ise-Shima Summit in 2016 and highly praised by the international leaders. Made from locally grown Yamada-Nishiki that is polished down to 40% and fermented at low temperature, resulting in a noble fruity aromatic brew. With the drip method called "Shizuku" the sake becomes even more delicate as each drop of sake drips slowly through hung bags driven by gravitation.

Crafted with local water and rice.
Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten, founded in 1869, is located in Suzuka, which is famous for its Formula One race track. In this region, which is blessed with limpid subterranean water from the Suzuka Mountains and high-quality rice from the Ise Plain, the brewing industry has long flourished. But many of these breweries have been forced out of business, and Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten is now the only brewery in Suzuka. The brewery uses mainly Mie rice grown by local contract farmers and brews on a small scale all year round. The brewery aims to craft a light sake that smoothly harmonizes with food, in pursuit of sake that fits with today's diverse cuisines.
