Okuharima Junmai Kasseisukuikumi Nigorishu Nama

This Okuharima Junmai Kasseisukuikumi Nigorishu Nama is one of my favorite types of unfiltered sake.

It’s one of the sakes from Shimura Sake Brewery in Hyogo Prefecture, and a variety of sakes are brewed in Okuharima alone.

Okuharima Junmai Kasseisukuikumi Nigorishu Nama is a limited-edition sake, and a set quantity is produced, making it difficult to get even in Japan, and few places serve it.

There’s a red seal with a warning written on it on the label, and it says something like “Please be careful as shaking the bottle may cause it to spurt out.”

Unfiltered sake continues the process of fermentation, called secondary fermentation, even inside the bottle, so shaking the bottle increases the pressure and causes it to spurt out.

Furthermore, when opening it, the staff at the store told me they had to carefully open and close it about 10 times, opening it a little at a time, then closing it. If they don’t, the contents will spurt out.

The appearance is silky, but the taste is fruity like an apple, and you can feel the fizziness of the carbonation.

Especially because it’s a junmai unfiltered sake, it has a taste where you can feel the flavor of the rice, and it’s very delicious.

Please try it when you find it in Japan.
