One of Fukumitsuya’s standout sakes is the Kagatobi Gokkan Junmai, made traditionally in the junmai style. True to history, it is brewed only during the coldest months of the year to ensure a long, steady fermentation period. The result is a sake that is clean and fresh, with notes of squash and cucumber, while also being full of acidity and umami to complement your meal. Structured, round and full-bodied on the palate, this sake can also be gently warmed to bring out the sweetness of the rice.
