Kokuryu Shuzo was established in 1804 in the northern part of Fukui.
The rice used in the brewing of this sake is Gohyakumangoku from Adoso, Fukui.
Simply fertilised using compost instead of chemical fertilisers, the farmers prefer to cultivate the crops with minimal intervention.
The Amatsuchi (uppermost layer of earth in a rice paddy) in Adoso, has an abundance of nutrients and the well rooted crops are extremely tolerant to strong winds.

A sweet nose of ripe melon, with a hint of banana.....hang on, is that pink marshmallow popping up? Or is it strawberry ice cream....?
Surprisingly, the palate is delicate...not too much lingers.
A stoney minerality and dry finish to complete this delicious amalgamation of tangled contrasts.

A stunning sake, a must try!🐲
