Akishika Shuzo was founded in Osaka prefecture in 1886 and under the present 6th generation Kuramoto [Brewery Owner] this tiny brewery is creating some of Japan’s most exceptional and finest sake. Hiroaki Oku is both Kuramoto and also Toji [Master Brewer] at Akishika and his dedication and skill in creating quality sake shows in every bottle.
The rice for this Sake is grown organically by Oku-san himself and has been made at the brewery for the last 25 years. The Mizore Moyo is unique as it is produced by reserving 1/3rd of the Moromi [fermenting liquid] which is then mixed back into the already pressed liquid. This results in a Sake with a large amount of very fine sediment and often produces a little gas on opening. A fresh ferment character with melon fruit, pear, fennel and a great lingering acidity. - Black Market Sake
