This is a Gold medal winner in 2019 in the Japan National Sake Championship, the result of its long established brewing history dating back to the edo period. This brewery married these natural elements of locally grown rice and mountain water with their age old echigo toji brewing technique. 
Tasting Notes:
This sake is very well balanced and smooth with a hint of fruitiness. Not a dry as one expect from a "Tanrei" style typical in the region. The umami gradually shows in it's smooth and complex finish. The smell is subtle, reflecting the subtle elegant sake for which the echigo region is famous.
