A giant bottle of rustically made sake that can be drank at all temperatures across a wide variety of foods. Kimoto is the oldest and original way of generating a culture of koji mold in the rice, a necessary step to break the complex starches of the grain into fermentable sugars. It results in a more gamey, umami rich flavor.
From the mouth of the importer (Mutaul Trading Co):
"By borrowing the power of the same naturally-occuring lactobacillae that have been produced in the Kiku-Masamune brewery for generations, this carefully & deliberately brewed sake Kimoto Junmai is born in the heart of the Nada ward of Hyogo (a region historically famous for Sake) where the brewery has been operating since the early Edo period of Japan. The sake itself has a deep, round flavor and is excellent at any temperature with nearly any kind of food.
Established over 350 years ago, Kiku-Masamune takes their status as a representative brand of Authentic Dry Sake very seriously, and their mission is clear. As stated in their famous 1983 commercial, "As your eyes fall upon good food, you begin to crave Kiku-Masa. As the dryness of Kiku-Masa hits your tongue, you begin to crave good food". Their history is steeped in the image of Dry Sake one enjoys with a meal, and to that end Kiku-Masamune utilizes their multiple facilities across Japan to create the ideal sake that one will never tire of drinking."
