Nanbu Bijin 10 Years Aged Daiginjo


Nanbu Bijin 10 Years Aged Daiginjo


Class: Daiginjo, Aged

Rice: Yamada Nishiki

Rice-Polishing Ratio: 35%

Brewery Location: Iwate Prefecture

Food Pairings: None

Tasting Notes: This extremely limited sake is not pressed, but allowed to drip from the lees in bags by the power of gravity alone. It is then aged in 1.8L bottles or a full 10 years in exceedingly cold temperatures, and then transferred into 720ml bottles for shipping. This sake is the legacy of the former brewmaster, who has since passed away, but whose spirit lives on in these special bottles. Posesses an extremely silky texture, and a heavenly aroma like Japanese fruits.
Not even for sale in Japan.

Brewery: Nanbu Bijin
Founded: 1902

Profile: The brewery was established in 1902, and the Nanbu Bijin brand name came to be in 1951. The Iwate area used to be called Nanbu (South), and is a place rich with nature, abundant water and fertile soil. In Japan, most breweries of the time made quite rough, inelegant, sweet sake, but this brewery wanted to make clean & beautiful sake like a fair southern maiden. Hence, the name Nanbu Bijin, or Southern Beauty.
