Shirakawago Junmai Nigori

Nigori (unfiltered)

This junmai nigorizake extravagantly uses twice the normal amount of rice used to make normal sake.
The process of making Doburoku sake leaves the mash in the sake, making it extremely dense and cloudy.

Paring Recommendation: Prosciutto, Smoked Salmon,
Beef Steak, Japanese Cream Stew, Cheese (wash type)

Produced by Miwa Shuzo, Gifu, Japan
Established in 1837.
The mainstay of Miwa Shuzo, the Shirakawago Junmai Nigorizake, was first produced at the request of the Shirakawa village, now a world cultural heritage site for its rafted roof houses, to be gifts of o-miki (sake offerings in shrines) for the Doburoku Festival.
The idea was to make a ‘Doburoku’ product as close to that served at the Doburoku Festival to make the townspeople happy.
To do this, pure rice was used and an exceptional sake with a Japanese sake ‘do’ (a standard measure of sweetness/dryness) of minus 25 was created.
