KIKUSUI’S GREATEST CREATION - SUPER PREMIUM SAKE
We harnessed Kikusui’s sake brewing technology, which has been cultivated for 130 years since our founding in 1881, all in the single-minded pursuit of the most supreme of sake.
Our efforts to achieve the highest-quality sake possible have coalesced in “Kuramitsu.” It is brewed with a degree of unprecedented, painstaking care that is nearly unfathomable.
Rising to the Challenge
The Kuramitsu brewing process makes absolutely no compromises, from the raw ingredients to the brewing methods. We use Legendary Kikusui Rice, widely recognized for its excellent quality. Who would think to use this rice for brewing Japanese sake? Kikusui’s relentless pursuit of the perfect ingredients is proof of our bold efforts. But these efforts do not stop at the ingredients.
This top-quality rice, which is grown for consumption and has grains even finer than typical brewer’s rice, has to be thoroughly polished for about 100 hours to 23%. Each and every grain is polished until it shines like a diamond.

Testimony by Mr. Robert Parker Jr.
Don’t be surprised that I am telling you this is a sake, even though it has distinct white wine scents, such as citrus, peach, lychee, grape, asparagus and freshly-cut grass. The NV Kuramitsu Junmai Daiginjo is smooth, off-dry and nicely balanced. The long finish is spicy and mineral.
