Sweetness, acidity and piquant plum flavor distinguish this lovely low-alcohol aperitif. Green plums provide the tartness, artisan rock sugar the sweetness and pure junmai sake the satisfying balance and smoothness.
Kamoizumi Brewing Company
Kamoizumi is brewed in Saijo, which developed into one of Japan’s top three brewing areas three hundred years ago due to its delicious water, cold brewing climate and ready supply of seasonal workers. Hiroshima sakes are said to possess both delicacy and strength, and Kamoizumi is no exception. Philip Harper writes: “Retains a convincing elegance despite its big bones. How do they do it?”
