【 Nanago 】 Bursting with regional character: Masumi Yeast No. 7, Nagano rice & yamahai style.

Brewed in the yamahai style using Masumi's own yeast No. 7 and our local Miyama Nishiki rice, Nanago has a mild fragrance and a full-bodied flavor with well-balanced acidity and a clean finish.

{ Master brewer's comments }

We created Nanago (number seven) to pay hommage to the number seven yeast that was discovered at Masumi. We use our own version of this yeast to give Nanago its firm acidity. The yamahai fermentation method adds a layer of lactic acidity and also brings Nanago's full flavors to a clean finish. It's a sake you can drink all night without getting tired of.
