Polished to
58%

Made with rice both from their ancestral province of Nagano (Hitogochi) as well as their current home of Niigata (Gohyakumangoku), this sake is a reflection of the brewer's heritage. It is clear and soft, with a gentle mouthfeel and soft aftertaste and a nicely approachable version of the region's "light and dry" style (tanrei karakuchi).

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Simple, modest and a little shy but not lacking elegance with light fruity notes of ripe banana. A gentle mouthfeel with light fruity and floral notes fades out with a clean, gentle finish.

Brewery Story

A True Family Business

Niigata's sake is famously known for it's 'light and dry' style of sake, which was most popular in the 1990s. While certainly delicious, this leads some sakes to lack a bit of texture and character. We find Hasegawa Shuzo's sakes to be a perfect mix. They retain the lightness and approachability of Niigata sake while providing a bit more character and uniqueness. Beautiful labels designed by local artists don't hurt either.
