Tasting Notes: The rice used in this sake is the grandfather of all sake rice - Omachi. This lends more defined and complex flavor characteristics to the Sake and adds more of an earthy quality. Ryujin's Omachi Junmai Ginjo has a plush umami and a crisp finish. It is an ideal match for many dishes.
Profile: Ryujin Shuzo's underground water is very soft and feminine, lending to their brewers the power to draw out the hidden flavors in their rice. Their aim is to create flavorful, mellow, high quality sake that warms the heart upon drinking.
They like to combine their traditional skills and methods with the brewer's heart. To this end, they work hard to improve their skills every day to work towards the next challenge, and brew excellent beer in the off season.
