For the 30th theartofsake Sake On-nomi, be the FIRST in Singapore to taste sakes from the Mountain Peak, Ishizuchi!
Founded in 1920 in Ehime prefecture, Ishizuchi Sake Brewery uses the extremely soft spring water "Uchinuki", which is one of the 100 most famous waters source in Japan. It is named after nearby Mount Ishizuchi, one of Japan's seven sacred peaks. Ishizuchi makes great sake that is often recognised as winners of various sake competition within and outside Japan.
They use a lot of local rice, one of which is called Matsuyamamii. It was developed by cross-straining a heirloom rice, and it has a large grain with low protein content that can be polish to quite a low level. You will be able to taste an extreme version of this with the brewery's ultra premium Vanquish sake retailing at $238. 👻
