Made from a local variety of organically grown rice, and aged initially, for about half a year, at room temperature, this medium-bodied dry namazake (unpasteurized ) has a unique ricy, earthy aftertaste. Drink cold or warmed (for enhancing the ricy/earthy taste).
Mutemuka Shuzō's owner was a pioneer when about 30 years ago, against strong opposition from his neighbour farmers (who believed in spraying away any form of life), he introduced organic farming to his sake rice. The result is a very earthy dry sake with an aroma and aftertaste like no other. The Mutemuka Shuzō brewery was founded in 1893. It is located close to the source of the Shimantogawa, Japan’s purest river.
