A sparkling sake crafted for Japanese cuisine that goes well beyond. Gracious umami presence followed by savory depth in the mid-palate and a lingering honey finish.
Miyasaka Brewing Company
Masumi is one of the great names of the sake world, admired throughout Japan for its unshakable down-to-earth reliability. The brewery where it is made was founded in 1662 in the town of Suwa, where a tradition of precision craftsmanship had led to the development of the silk spinning trade. Masumi achieved great prominence in 1946 with the discovery of a new yeast variety, “Nanago” or Association No. 7. With its gentle aroma and ease of use Nanago continues to be used by over half of the breweries in Japan.
