Niida Honke is the real deal, founded in 1711 (with 18 generations of head brewers!) and one of only two breweries in Japan to solely use Shizenmai, organic rice made with zero fertilizers or pesticides. Preservation is top of mind, both environmentally in their ambitious commitment to sustainable agriculture and in keeping traditions like the Kimoto method alive, a traditional and labour-intensive method used here that gives sake a luscious, creamy mouthfeel. Think of it like the Champagne method –more work but the results are incredibly worthwhile! Shizenshu is rich, luscious & umami-rich with a slight fruitiness, a kiss of sweetness & a clean, precise finish – maybe even a touch of spice! Would pair with everything from the most delicate omakase to a simple soy-brushed grilled chicken on rice. A perfect intro to organic and Kimoto sakes & a real joy to experience.
