ZAKU Junmai Daiginjo "Kaizan Ittekisui"
作 槐山一滴水 純米大吟醸
Premium series of "ZAKU" designed to provide an elevated taste experience. "ITTEKISUI" (literally one drop of water) refers to the teaching that the existence of all mountains, rivers, plants, and trees embodies all things around us, and that even a single drop of water contains the life of Buddha. The sake is made from Yamada-Nishiki polished to 40% and fermented slowly at low temperature, and has a noble aroma and pleasant aftertaste, just like the Japanese pagoda tree, a nobel tree of ancient times.

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.
