- 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.

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.
