Koshi no Hana (KOSHINOHANA SHUZO CO., LTD.)
Koshinohana Shuzo is a small brewery in the Niigata plains. This agricultural region, very snowy and cold in the winter, is one of the most iconic terroir for the production of sake. Founded at the end of the 19th century, koshinohana sake brewery has managed to keep their traditions together with being innovative with very original sakes such as Kawasemi that compliments the multiple award-winning Daiginjos from the brewery.
A daiginjo sake with a fragrant aroma and gentle, blooming note. A true delicacy.
Chikurin (MARUMOTO Sake BREWERY CO.,LTD. )
Although it is common practice for wine producers to grow their own grapes, it is not so common for sake brewers to grow their own rice — sake’s main ingredient. At their brewery, they grow organic rice with an aim to produce “safe and secure Japanese sake”.
Organic farming is a method that brings out the original cultivation power of the rice field, without using pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Their product “ORGANIC CHIKURIN ” is made from this organic rice.
In 2009, they have received organic certification from the National Organic Program (NOP) in North America, and in 2010, they became the first Japanese sake brewer to be certified by organic standard in Europe (EC Regulation).
The mellow aroma is reminiscent of fragrant trees.Despite the allover dryness, one could faintly trace a dark and smooth sweetness and a satisfying taste of brown, unmilled rice. The more sips that are taken, the more umami is recognised and savored.
