Imanishi Shuzo is the oldest sake brewery in Japan situated at the birthplace of sake – Miwa in Nara Prefecture. Mimurosugi (みむろ杉) focuses on the expression of terroir where sake brewing first began and this is considered their “domaine” selection where the water used to irrigate the rice fields is also used for sake brewing. Imanishi-san, together with his team, are also heavily involved in the cultivation of rice used for brewing, adopting low pesticide farming.
This dry sake has an umami that expands in the mouth. It finishes with a light, but sharp acidity.
