RED HAWK Junmai Ginjo (越の鷹 純米吟醸)
Junmai Ginjo Sake is made from 100% Sakahomare sake rice developed by Fukui Prefecture for Daiginjo. It is a sake that makes the best use of the umami of the specially cultivated rice "Sakahomare". The fruity fragrance that is born from it is irresistible.
Ito Sake Brewery maintains a great tradition of working on flexible sake brewing that will satisfy sake lovers and casual drinkers alike. Ito Sake Brewery has a warehouse near the Kuzuryu River, the family temple of the Fukui domain, "Daianzenji". From the Meiji era to the Taisho era, brewed sake was carried by riverboat from the river to Mikuni Bay, and from there, the transportation industry such as Kyoto and Niigata thrive.
In recent years, the brewery has been involved in sake brewing as Mr. Mori himself, has been producing sake that directly brings out the brewery's character. As a result, "Dry Junmai Ginjo" and "Sake Junmai Ginjo" were all unique and sharp Junmai Ginjo, and rich and fruity Junmai Ginjo was developed.
They are also trying to make original pure rice sake from rice produced in Fukui prefecture, which is harvested by a local farmer. Ito Sake brewing takes advantage of Fukui's climate with sake rice and water, from the great nature of Fukui - fully drawing out the aroma of Junmai Ginjo and the umami of rice.
