Masuizumi Kijoshu OakKijoshu
Honey like sweetness and high acidity. Aging in barrel gives it more balanced and more depth. Very special product.
Sweet style sake, Kijoshu is brewed with the same procedure as ordinary sake but instead of adding water as final step of creating fermenting mash process, alcoholic sake is added. Therefore activity of yeast gradually slows and more sweetness from koji remains.
The refreshing, well-balanced acidity that flows after the rich sweetness makes this Kijoshu unique.
