Junmai Ginjo Kiyosu is a Junmai Ginjo quality sake with a rice polish of 58%. It is fruity and fresh with a nice rice note and impresses with an exciting complexity. It is a great and versatile accompaniment to food and should be enjoyed well chilled. It is produced in Aichi Prefecture. The region has a long tradition of sake brewing and has perfect climatic conditions for this.
The producer of Junmai Ginjo Kiyosu is the Kiyosuzakura Brewery, which looks back on over 170 years of sake brewing tradition. Sake from Aichi Prefecture is characterised by the most advanced fermentation and brewing techniques in Japan. The reason for this lies in the long tradition of making soy sauce and miso. The same techniques used for the fermentation of these products are also used in sake brewing. The prefecture is blessed with a climate perfect for sake brewing, which is why many sake breweries are located here. The water comes from three rivers: the Kiso River, the Nagara River and the Ibi River. This natural source is rich in minerals, which is so important for the growth and cultivation of high-quality sake rice.
The Junmai Ginjo Kiyosu has a full body and great fruit notes. A pleasant acidity is present as well as an intense rice flavour. A fantastic sake with a great price-performance ratio. In terms of food pairing, it goes particularly well with fish and seafood, as well as white meat and fruity desserts. Enjoy the Kiyosu Junmai Ginjo well chilled in a special sake glass or alternatively in a white wine glass.

About Kiyosuzakura Brewery Corp.
Kiyosuzakura Brewery was founded in 1853 and is based in Kiyosu in Aichi Prefecture on Japan's main island of Honshu. For 170 years, the focus here has been on brewing sake, but for the past few decades, the company has also been producing shochu, liquors, for example umeshu, wine, and now gin. Kiyosu is located on the outskirts of Nagoya City, where the three rivers Kiso, Ibi and Nagara make for very fertile soil. This environment offers ideal conditions for sake brewing, but also for the production of high-quality spirits.
The company is very progressive and environmentally conscious and works a lot on new forms of packaging. For example, a popular umeshu from the brewery is now only filled in beverage cartons and no longer in bottles, which has a positive effect on the eco footprint.
