Ginjo “Kinokuniya Bunzaemon”

“Kinokuniya Bunzaemon,” one of the most famous business tycoons from Kishu (Wakayama), made a fortune in the Edo Period by risking his life to transport loads of Kishu mikan (mandarin oranges) on a ship called the “Kinokuni Mikanbune” to Edo. Created under the banner of “sake rich in the goodness of rice from Wakayama, the mecca of rice growing,” this brand “Kinokuniya Bunzaemon” named after the business tycoon, uses carefully-chosen varieties of rice brewed into higher-quality sake.

Brewed using “Yumenishiki,” rice brand well-known as suited for sake brewing, this is a highly fragrant but refreshing ginjo sake. It has a fresh and light ginjo fragrance typical of ginjo sake, as well as cleanness and briskness. It goes very well with food, and you will never get tired of drinking it thanks to its freshness.

The toji (chief sake brewer) recommends drinking it cold. Enjoy this fresh-drinking sake full of ginjo (careful brewing) fragrance.
