Intense aromas of grilled nuts, pistachio and a hint of warm liquid cocoa. In the mouth, the flavors follow through with nuts and melon as it heads for a crisp finish, and then just a hint of lingering sweetness. It is at once savory and sweet, and has enough power to make it a great match with a wide variety of food pairings. A truly distinctive sake.
The name of this wonderful sake was inspired by local legends about mysterious lights that appeared on nearby Mt. Kirin in the distant past. Locals claim the lights are paper lanterns carried in the fox-bride procession. This mysterious event is celebrated in Niigata every year in the fox-bride festival. Kaetsu uses rice grown on the high plains and pure mountain water to brew superior sake, both rich in aroma and clean in taste.
In 2004, Kaetsu Sake Brewery released a new sake line named Kanbeara. Kanbara is the name of a nearby district that traces its origins back very far in our local history. Kanbara offers two products in the USA-- Bride of the Fox and Wings of Fortune. Both are Junmai Ginjo grade, with the former made with Gohyakumangoku rice and the latter with Yamada Nishiki rice.

Junmai-Ginjo is one step higher than the Junmai classification. The rice must have a suimai-buai of at least 60%, meaning at least 40% of the original rice has been milled off, leaving more pure starch for the saké. Ginjo also includes more attention to the brewing process, with lower temperatures used for fermentation and the use of hand pressing. The resultant saké is in turn more light and delicate than Junmai, but also more complex, layered and fragrant.
