- Heiwa Shuzou Kid Muryozan 30 Junmai Daiginjo Sake (gift box)
Located in a valley in Kainan City, Wakayama lies what was once originally built as a temple named “Muryozan,” but now stands as Heiwa Shuzou, renamed after the end of the Second World War (Heiwa translates to “peace” or “harmony”). While the Yamamoto family has been making sake for 4 generations, the KID brand itself was born when the current President, Norimasa Yamamoto assumed his current place in his family’s history.
With the goal to create the new standard for next generation Sake in Japan, Heiwa Shuzou brings us “KID” Muryozan 30. This sake, which receives its name from the former temple it is now brewed in, is the highest grade and best series of the KID sake lineup. Using Grade A Yamadanishiki from Hyogo and a milling rate of 30%, this rice requires a very sophisticated and delicate technique for every step in the brewing process. Heiwa Shuzou puts fort every ounce of energy to brew this sake to be the most beautiful. Muryozan 30 is elegant, soft and smooth.
- Yuki No Bosha Kachou Gesseki Daiginjo “Morning Flower, Evening Moon” (gift box)
Kachou Gesseki is the competition-grade daiginjo from Yuki No Bosha. It has consistently won top marks at the Tohoku Region and Akita Prefecture sake contests. Mr. Toichi Takahashi is the brew master of YUKI NO BOSHA and has been instrumental in the local sake industry of Akita. He currently sits as an advisor on the Sannai Toji Guild of Akita where he helps to elevate sake making skills and educate younger generations of brewers.
Takahashi-toji is committed to a method of sake making that shows the utmost respect for the natural environment. In order to protect the microorganisms of Saiya brewery there are several things the brewery does not do: they do not stir the fermentation tanks, they do not dilute the sake, they do not use charcoal filtration, and they do not use chemicals to clean the brewery. In order to maintain unique characteristics in the sake, Takahashi-toji only uses proprietary yeasts, some 40 years old. Additionally, he works closely with contract Yamada Nishiki rice farmers in Hyogo, giving direction on rice patty management to ensure high quality over yield. For all this, Takahashi-toji has been recognized as a National Treasure of Japan.
It is aromatic like a perfume, shows blood orange and peach on the palate, and finishes with long, elegant honey notes.
