Nanbu Bijin Ancient Pillars (720ML)
In 1951, we decided to stop making the sweet sake so common back then, a style with plenty of off-flavors. Instead, we decided to brew "clean and beautiful" sake. Hence, we created the Nanbu Bijin brand name to personify our sake. Nanbu stands for the region, and Bijin (meaning beautiful woman) for the delicate, light, and clean nature of our sake. Our sake is brewed with medium-hard water that is purified naturally as it courses through the mountain rock on its way to the sea. We use Hito-mebore, Toyonishiki and Sasanishiki sake rice, and of course, our sake is brewed by a Nanbu-area toji.
A notch above Junmai in its milling requirement, by definition Junmai-Ginjo requires milling of 40% of the rice grain so that 60% of each grain remains. The categories of sake are established not by rice variety, but by the polishing or milling percentages. Junmai-Ginjo is made up of water, koji mold, yeast and rice and is brewed without the addition of any added alcohol.
