Sake Description:

Banzai is a phantom Sake rice that was presented to the Japanese Emperor during the Taisho period (1915), and its cultivation ceased over time.

Recent years local farmers in Okazaki City, Aichi Prefecture, the land where it was cultivated at the time, have revived it for the first time in 100 years, starting with just 10g of seed rice where Maruishi Jozo was asked to craft sake with such rare rice.

Each grain of Banzai rice is meticulously polished down to 70%, revealing its exceptional suitability for sake brewing, comparable to the famous Omachi Rice.

Upon tasting, you'll be greeted with a delicate muscat aroma and then a harmonious balance of sweetness, sourness, spiciness, and umami that envelops your palate. The lingering finish of Maruishi Junmai Nito 70 Banzai is smooth and unforgettable. Experience the unparalleled power of Banzai Rice with just one sip.


元々は萬歳ブランドとして丸石醸造から発売されていましたが「二兎 萬歳」としてリニューアルされました。そもそも萬歳(ばんざい)とは、大正時代に天皇献上されており一時は栽培が途絶えてしまった希少なお米。現在では、愛知県岡崎市が復活させた復刻米です。そしてそのごく僅かな中、丸石醸造のみが使用しています。
