Tsurushi Bizenyaki Junmai

Junmai

From the old days, ‘miso’ paste and vinegar made by placing a piece of Bizen ware in the fermentation tanks has been reputed to be delicious; this sake is made by placing a piece of Bizen ware in the tank of fermentation mash. The result is a semi-dry Junmai sake with exquisitely balanced acidic and umami flavours. This sake can be enjoyed at room temperature, chilled, or on the rocks. It pairs well with Japanese dishes such as sushi and other seafood dishes, and unexpectedly with salads, chocolate, and more. We recommend it as a sake served with meals.

Futsu-shu

From the old days, ‘miso’ paste and vinegar made by placing a piece of Bizenyaki ware in the fermentation tanks has been reputed to be delicious; this sake is made by placing a piece of Bizenyaki ware in the tank of fermentation mash. Having a complex and broad texture of old rice varieties, this sake is characterized by an expansive mild taste. It is produced with the concept of providing a reasonably-priced Omachi rice sake. It can be enjoyed chilled, at room temperature, or heated, and pairs well with barbeque and other meat dishes, pizza, dried fruit, and more. This is a sake for everyday enjoyment.

Between the southern area of Okayama Prefecture which faces the Seto Inland Sea, and the deep green ravines of Kibi Highland in the central part of the prefecture where beautiful 'jinya' shogunate headquarters and old town areas remain, is this brewery in the Ashimori district of Okayama City. A white-walled brewery built in the Edo period (1603-1868), the brewery began operating in 1870. The earthen walled structure naturally adjusts temperature and humidity levels; old breweries that have unique structures and devices that naturally assisted the craftsman of bygone days are impossible to reproduce. Blessed with a rare environmental situation, only rice produced in Okayama Prefecture is used and is brewed the old fashioned way.

Itano Shuzo Honten TojiFuminobu Itano

Born in 1973, Itano, together with his elder sister, manage a "new wave" in the world Okayama brewers. His creed is "to borrow the harshness of local nature, and to use the old brewery and tools to make unique, 'Only One' sake." The skills for Bitchu-style of sake production at this brewery have received awards of honor for 40 consecutive years at the Prefectural Master Brewers' Sake Fair; this is a great merit that has been passed down from preceding masters. Itano loves the clear, blue water of the Ashimori River, which was the water source to Bitchu Takamatsu Castle and which historical figure Hideyoshi Toyotomi cut off; extracting the power of Omachi rice to his fullest power, Itano always strives to further improve.
