This sake boasts a natural Kimoto flavor, which is full-bodied and earthy, yet light. It is exquisitely balanced and masterfully brewed as the almighty sake. Kimoto-produced Junmai sakes, served hot, cold or at room temperature, will exhibit their true, rich qualities. Ideal for sake lovers.
Unlike most breweries' current practice of adding commercially purchased lactic acid, the Kimoto method is a traditional and painstaking technique for cultivating robust yeast slowly and methodically by tapping the natural biological power of living lactic acid bacteria. Strong yeast cultivated using the Kimoto method continues to actively ferment even as the alcohol content of the sake mash increases toward the end of the fermentation period, creating a refreshingly dry sake with very few impurities.Kiku-Masamune invites you to enjoy the refined taste of this dry Junmai Sake, which is made possible by the Kimoto method.
In Japanese tokubetsu means “special” and Hakkaisan Tokubestu Junmai is special in many ways. The signature ingredient of this sake is the fine local water, coming from melting snow and filtered by Mount Hakkai.
