Award-winning Kokken Sake Brewery is surrounded by natural forests and meadows, located in the lush and snowy Southern Aizu region of Fukushima (Japan's 3rd largest prefecture, home to a wide range of lakes, forests and mountains, giving them very large and diverse terroir for sake brewing). Utilizing the teachings of the Nanbu Brewmasters' Guild and their own local touch, they produce exclusively Tokutei Meisho-shu (Premium Grade Sake like Junmai, Daiginjo, etc.) and only use varietals of rice registered as suitable for sake brewing grown from pure water. Kokken produces many different sake (especially Junmai), but their brews are well-loved by locals and at least 60% of their sake is consumed in Fukushima.
This aged sake has a heedy, mature aroma and a deep, round flavor. When serving this sake gently warmed, one can enjoy these qualities at the peak of performance.
