Learn About Junmai-Ginjo

Junmai-Ginjo

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.
