2019 Fukuchiyo Shuzo 'Nabeshima Gohyakumangoku'

Saga Prefecture, Japan

The Nabeshima ‘G’ is made with Gohyakumagoku rice, it is also nama-cho which means that unlike conventional pasteurised sake which is heat treated twice, this guy has been stored unpasteurised until bottling where it is then heat treated once maintaining a  fresh, lively palate of nama [unpasteurised] sake whilst gaining some roundness and depth. A fragrant nose of melon and aniseed. The palate has a mellow texture with a spine of spice along the tongue. The finish has a refreshing acidic lift. Abv 16% and 720ml. No sulphites, additives or preservatives.

About the maker

Fukuchiyo Shuzo was founded in 1924 and is located south of Saga City in the town of Kashima. The owner Naoki Iimori is also the Toji [Master Brewer] and his aim is to create sake that tastes unique, vibrant and fresh.

One of the ways Iimori-san does this is by brewing his sake at low temperatures over a long period. All of Fukuchiyo’s sake are made with a Sokujo moto [modern starter method] which at most breweries would mean a 14-16 day ferment, however Iimori-san doubles this time to around 30-33 days. This ‘slow and low’ ferment creates freshness with body. All of the sake at Fukuchiyo are also Muroka, or made without charcoal filtration. Iimori-san believes that if sake is made with quality ingredients and attention to detail, then charcoal filtration is not required.
