The company are meticulous in their production, using only rice and water Hiroshima Prefecture. Chugoku Jozo use top quality brewer’s rice (the famous Hattan Nishiki variety, alongside Koji, a malted rice), which has been polished down to about a third of its original size. This is fermented swiftly with specially selected yeasts.
The end result is a dry and crisp sake, offering a little fruity sweetness and maltiness from the rice. The bottling is perfect for pairing with seafood, and can be served either hot or cold.
