A very dry premium sake from a brewery founded originally in 1857 to make traditional sake from the local rice. Now the farmers and brewers belong to the same company, involved in the entire process of making the sake from growing the rice in environmentally-friendly ways to the polishing and brewing. They see the sake as an agricultural product as well as a brewed one. It is genshu, meaning undiluted after fermented completes leaving the alcohol level at the natural 18%.
From the mouth of the importer (Mutual Trading Co):
"An rich and extra dry Genshu Junmai sake from Izumibashi, that has the special qualities of the Yamada Nishiki sake rice.
Believing that good sake is made with good rice, Izumibashi is one of the few breweries in Japan that polish AND grow their own sake-rice with their own hands. The name Izumibashi comes from the Izumi river which used to irrigate their fields, and Hashi their family name - together Izumibashi means Izumi Bridge."
