Kamonishiki Junmai Daiginjo Brilliance Kamenoo (720ml) 加茂錦 純米大吟醸 BRILLIANCE 亀の尾

Sake Competition Gold

Clearly, a contemporary expression of Kame-no-O, one of the oldest heirloom rice varietals.  While it flourished in the early 1900s, high-yielding & disease - resistant varietals like Koshihikari overtook in favour with modern agricultural chemical & fertilizers.

Not until the late 1970s, was Kame-no-O revived in Niigata & this is Kamonishiki paying homage to this extraordinary rice varietal.  

Great depth of flavour with nostalgic rusticity interwoven with fresh fruity ginjo aromas.

Kamonishiki Shuzo加茂錦酒造

Kamonishiki sake is so approachable that it can convert any inexperienced sake drinker, any dabbler, into a big fan of the rice brew. The Nifudasake series adorns a fun new style of label design featuring a cargo tag stamped with the name of each type making it easily recognizable and eye-catching. Each tag also features the tank number from which the brew was bottled. Each season, the brewery releases a new version of the Nifudasake which creates a new buzz. The styles can vary from juicy to crisp and dry but they always maintain a fresh quality at a lower alcohol content for easy drinking.
