Rice (hitomebore variety) comes from the rice fields irrigated by the pure water of the Izumigatake Mountain (north-west of Sendaï). Kobo yeast is also coming from Miyagi Prefecture, making of the EN a true «terroir» sake. First taste is full bodied, but remaining in the dry category. It is characterized by its powerful notes of early cooked rice. It can be enjoyed chilled or warm during all the meal.
It is characterized by a rich flavor of concentrated sweetness and umami, powerful and rich notes of cooked raw rice. It is drunk fresh or hot, from the beginning to the end of the meal. This sake won the Best Junmaï Award in 2012 at the prestigious Sendai Sake Competition. Japanese sake makers say that En Tokubetsu Junmaï is the expression of the purity and sweetness of Sendai rice.

Our perfect combination : fish, oysters, wagyu grilled meat

Our tip
Rotate the bottle (head to tail) 2 or 3 times. Rice starch saccharification generates glucose, which is more dense than the rest of the liquid. The glucose is at the bottom of the bottle and this rotation helps spreading uniformly throughout the bottle.

KATSUYAMA SUPRÊME SAKÉ

The nihonshu of the Lords

Katsuyama sake brewery established in the second half of the 17th century, more precisely between 1650 and 1688, in the current Prefecture of Miyagi controlled then by a very powerful Samurai Chief (Sengoku Daimyõ) answering the name Date Masamune. The region of Sendaï was his Kingdom and owed his financial power to the cultivation of rice, a real currency at the time but also a symbol of financial power.
