The second revival of “Tokyo Zakari” Limited quantity Junmai Daiginjo
We cover last month Koyama Honke Sake Brewing inheriting the brand name of “Tokyo Zakari”, a sake that had been enjoyed by many since the Taisho era in hope of prosperity in the city of Tokyo.
Koyama Sake Brewery in (Iwabuchi, Kita-ku, Tokyo), has had a close relationship with the Koyama Honke in Saitama due to family relationship, this made it easier to bring the iconic brand name and now following the release of the first revival of the Junmai Ginjo, the second revival is now here, and this time a Junmai Daiginjo has been released, however in limited quantities.
This time, the limited Junmai Daiginjo, a discerning gem brewed with traditional techniques that have been studied since the establishment in 1808 of the original Koyama Sake Brewery has seen this time, using 100% Yamada Nishiki that has been carefully polished to 40% of its raw material rice grain.
It develops fruity and full flavours reminiscent of the rice and the Daiginjo aroma notes of peaches and melons.
The label uses cherry blossoms of Yoshino cherry tree, an iconic flower in Tokyo. Since the ancient times and the best option to highlight this new line of Tokyo Zakari.
