～Japan No.1 Strongest and Richest Taste Sake !!～～日本で一番濃いお酒!!～09 Oct 2015
The 19th UNESCO World Heritage Committee has listed among its items of "World Heritage" the "Gassho-Zukuri" (steep-thatched-roofed) dwellings in Ogimachi, SHirakawa Village, Gifu Prefecture and the "Gasso-Zukuri" hamlets in Ainokura and SUganuma in Gokayama, Toyama Prefecture.
This will be the sixth case in Japan to have been so listed, coming after such temples,
shrines, and castles as Himeji Castle, Horyuji Temple, and 17 shrines and temples in Kyoto.
Also listed as "World Heritage" are the Great Wall of China and America`s the Statue of Liberty.
"Gassho-Zukuri" dwellings have been preserved by teh village people over the centuries.
Looking for all as if time had stopped in its tracks, the hamlets beckon the visitor with their age-old serenity and warmth.
Using Hidahomare rice, this nifilterized sake has succeded in bringing out the deliciousness of rice itself.
The milky-white sake produces a unique sensation when it passed through the palate and throat.
Blended with "Moromi" (sake-mash), the mellow taste and wealthy aroma is best enjoyed when served slightly chilled or "on the rocks".
This Nigori Sake Shirakawago Junmai is the strongest and richest taste sake in Japan. Due to the exquisite balance between sweetness and acidity, you will fully enjoy its natural umami (good taste). Although it is the best to drink it straight, you may want to mix it with sparkling water to create a "Nigori Highball", which can be a totally new experience. It is made possible by the richness of Nigori-Sake. Shirakawa-Go has been receiving strong support from the fruit of Miwa Shuzo`s brewing excellence and delicacy.
