Gold medal-winning Daiginjo

Gokeijo Gold Award-winning Daiginjo and "Yamadanishiki" from District Special A

Our recommended product for export is " Gokeiji Gold Prize Daiginjo" which won the highest award, the Gold Prize, at the National New Sake Competition held once a year.

Among the king of sake rice is "Yamada Nishiki", the highest quality from the special A district. It is lavishly used to create a sake with a melon-like flavor and a superb sweetness.

Recommended Way to Enjoy

Chill it well and drink it in a wide-mouthed glass like a wine glass to enjoy its rich aroma.

Since it is characterized by its gorgeous aroma and mellow flavor, we recommend serving it as an aperitif with a light snack such as cream cheese.


Other popular products include junmai ginjo made mainly from Ibaraki rice, such as "Hitachi nishiki", "Fukumaru," and "Omachi". It is a junmai ginjo with a juicy and fruity flavor made from Okayama's representative sake brewing rice.
