Sake Mirai, rice chosen for this Junmai Ginjo, created by the Takagi Brewery, makers of the Jyuyondai brand, where Mr. Sumikawa trained before taking over as head brewer of his own brewery. Enticing aromas of fresh picked strawberries and cream, juicy with voluminous umami on the palate, soft astringency providing a refreshing finish. Non-charoal or carbon filtered and pasteurized once for optimal freshness.

Jundoichizu, the words of Mr. Sumikawa's mentor, Koichi Yoneda Toji, when he was an apprentice. He still treasures these words:Live life with a single-minded focus on sake brewing, now and in the future."

Sumikawa Brewery澄川酒造

Mr. Takafumi Sumikawa, the 4th generation Kuramoto, was someone who was sure of his path to brewing. He studied at the Brewing department of Tokyo Agricultural University and trained at the Takagi brewery even while he was still a student under the tutelage of Mr. Takagi Akinori, the makers of the ever popular Jyuyondai brand. He joined his family’s brewery thereafter, and became both Kuramoto and Toji. Mr. Sumikawa is considered a top brew master of his generation. Aiming for a gorgeous sake which is clear and umami rich, Toyo Bijin Sake is refined and elegant, with just the right balance of floral and fruity notes. The name Toyo Bijin, which means Eastern Beauty, fits the pristine style of the brew and its aesthetic perfectly, so much so that the Junmai Daiginjo Ichiban Matoi was even chosen to be served at the Japan Russia Summit in 2016.
