Fukucho Moon on the Water
Junmai-Ginjo
Hiroshima, Japan

Sakery Notes:
A rather fragrant junmai ginjo, bottled immediately without charcoal filtering. The fine-lined flavor is as bold as the fragrance, with a soft-edged fullness overall.

Water in this region is very, very soft in comparison to most sak'-brewing regions in Japan. This is a major contributor to the unique taste and feel of their sak'. It melts and absorbs into the palate, taking flavor and fragrance with it in a very unique way.

About the Producer:
Our brewery was founded in the first year of the Meiji Restoration, 1868, in Akitsu in Hiroshima Prefecture. Akitsu has the oldest sake-brewing history in Hiroshima, stretching back 400 years. Akitsu, which faces the Inland Sea and has a population of about 13,000 people, once had 17 sake breweries, but now there are only three. Hiroshima, however, is still one of the most significant sake-brewing regions in Japan, and is consistently among the top six prefectures nationwide in terms of annual sake production. Historically, the prefecture has always won many awards for its sake, and on occasion has even swept the top three awards in the country. The sake we brew here at Imada Shuzo, called Fukucho, is very representative of this great Hiroshima style.
