The Udisan No Sake Awamori comes to us from one of the most idyllic places in Japan, namely from Okinawa, the tropical holiday destination, also called the island of the centenarians. Awamori is Okinawa's traditional spirit, always made from rice and black koji. This makes Awamori a very intense, spicy and complex drink. The Udisan No Sake is extremely aromatic and yet very soft and mild.
Udisan is an old word from the Ryūkyū language and means "joy". Udisan No Sake Awamori is produced by Miyanohana on the island of Miyakojima, Okinawa Prefecture. It is not made from imported Thai rice, as is usually the case, but from 100% domestic rice. It is important to the company that the rice is grown without the use of fertilizers, compost or pesticides. The producers found what they were looking for in a farmer in Kumamoto, so that they can only use Japanese rice (Hinohikari) from natural cultivation for the production of Udisan No Sake Awamori.
80% of Miyanohana's workforce are women, by the way. They are said to have a particularly gentle and loving craftsmanship when distilling, and indeed the Udisan is particularly mild, soft and round. After distillation, this Awamori is aged in steel tanks for over a year. The strong umami notes from the black koji are followed by a slight sweetness from the domestic rice. The Udisan is complex and deep and has an alcohol content of 30% by volume. The beautiful, bright bottle symbolizes the blue sky over Okinawa.
The Udisan No Sake Awamori is ideal in food pairing with smoked fish and meat, fried foods, fatty meat (e.g. pork belly) and cheese. It tastes pure or on the rocks, with soda or cold water extended it is a fantastic companion for eating.

About Miyanohana Co. Ltd.
Miyanohana was founded in 1948 on Irabu Island in the Miyako Islands, about 300 km southwest of the main island of Okinawa Honto. The water of the island, which has a population of 6,000, is ideal for the production of awamori because it contains many minerals. 80% of Miyanohana's workforce are women, something special in an industry that is actually a true male domain.
