Saiya Shuzouten founded in 1902, is located in the Akita prefecture which is in the northern Tohuku region of Japan. It is managed by Kotaro Saito and their philosophy is basically that the sake brews itself, the Tōji merely acting as a guide. Thus, they engage in very minimal intervention, often letting the sake develop as it desires - as it was meant to be.
This Junmai ginjo is a favourite with new and seasoned sake lovers alike. With a seimaibuai of 55%, it is soft and light on the palate, with a delightful fruitiness characterised by peaches, strawberries and papaya. Best served chilled, it complements light foods like salad, sushi and sashimi. It can also be paired with very savoury and rich foods, as well as certain cheeses and desserts.
