Regular price £43.20

>Higami sake brewery / 簸上清酒合名会社 has maintained a cellar in Shimane prefecture since 1712. Along with the pure water of Okuizumo, which is known as the point of origin of foamless yeasts, and meticulously selected sake rice, the techniques of Izumo-toji combine to create a distinct mellow flavor. This Nanakanba series of sake, "The Seven," is themed after Symboli Rudolf, the most powerful racehorse of the 20th century. The Type R is a pure rice scrutinized fermentation featuring a dramatic red label and is made with 100% Yamada-nishiki, the “king of sake rice,” polished up to 50%. You can enjoy the flavor of Yamada-nishiki and the ginjo aroma to the fullest. This is a limited batch of just 500 bottles.
