Our featured Sake of the Week is Keigetsu "Pineapple Bonanza" Junmai Daiginjo Cel24. Brewed by Tosa Brewery Company (TBC) in Tosa Town, Kochi Prefecture.
Founded in 1877 in the northern mountains of Kochi, Tosa Brewery used to make mostly table sake for the local community. After Muneki Matsumoto took over as president almost 10 years ago, they quickly started making international award winning Sake!
This sake tries to create a product that showcases the terroir of Kochi. Although not light and dry like typical Kochi Sake, it uses a Kochi-specific sakamai, Ginnoyume, grown in the Aikawa high altitude rice terraces just near the brewery. Cel24 refers to the Kochi developed yeast type that gives a lot of tropical aromas.
Watch our in-house graceful sake somm, Grace, show you how drinking this sake reminds you of your favourite beach holiday!
