Located in the town of Iga in Mie. Rumiko Moriki is the 4th generation of her family to own the brewery. Along with her husband Hideki, they are not only the Kuramoto (owners) of this tiny brewery, but also the Tōji (Master Brewers). Rumiko became the first female Toji in Japan in the late 1980’s when she took over the sake making duties at her family owned brewery.
Omekashi is made from Hitokochi & Yamada Nishiki rice types. The Kijoshu technique involves brewing with the previous years finished sake as well as water, utilising the sake to add more umami, acidity and depth to the brew. This fine and complex example is sweet yet fresh on the palate. Delicious on its own or with sweeter dishes. -- Black Market Sake
