Michisakari - Famous Dry Sake From Gifu Prefecture
In the post-war era, when the trend in Japan was for sweeter sake, Michisakari took the challenge to brew dry sake, but not without a series of hardships. There were voices inside and outside the company saying that the sake won't sell well, if it's not sweet. However, even in the midst of this, there were people who encouraged the brewery not to change the current taste. Encouraged by those people, they were able to continue their efforts to make a dry sake that was soft to the palate and easy to drink.
Michisakari's dry sake was also popularised by famous novelist (awarded the Order of Culture by the Japanese government), Tatsuo Nagai, who happened upon Michisakari by chance. He fell in love with the clear, dry flavour and recommended it to many acquaintances, and soon it was in restaurants and sushi bars all over Japan.
We recommend trying Michisakari Junmai Daiginjo Kojikomi, which is the highest grade sake of the brewey. In order to further evolve as a karakuchi sake, the brewey has selected the ingredients from scratch to create a highly aromatic taste, a clear aftertaste, and a superb sharpness. The result is a sake with a distinct Michisakari character.
