An adorable single serving sized can of clean, off dry sake. Baded in the Fushimi ward of Kyoto, the brewery was founded in 1673 and was among the first to make modern sake without additives. Ginjo style, a higher quality sake with a minimum of 60% polish rate for the rice, a process done by the brewery (which is not a common practice). Excellent for warm and spicy meals, Asian and otherwise.
From the mouth of the importer (Mutual Trading Co):
"Tamano Hikari Brewery draws out the umami from their rice in this slightly acidic sake in order to best draw out the flavor of the raw ingredients. Boasts a subtle flavor and aroma, and a clean finish. Tamano Hikari Tokusen has a long history of sales in Kyoto.
For over 300 years, Tamano Hikari Brewery has been working their hardest to brew supreme quality sake. Their motto is that "Good Sake comes from Good Rice" and so they polish all of their sake rice - obtained through contracts with private farmers - within the walls of their brewery.
They were one of the first to halt the use of additives like alcohol and sugar, but were also the first to halt use of preservatives, and basically reestablished Junmai sake. In 1980, they added Ginjo style sake to their repertoire. Now almost all the sake they produce is Junmai Ginjo style."
