Aizuhomare Daiginjo Kiwami Blue Label (大吟醸 極 碧ラベル)

Aizuhomare Daiginjō Kiwami Blue Label (大吟醸 極 碧ラベル) is made of rice grown in Fukushima, milled to 50%, and Association 1801 yeast. It is a slightly luxurious daily daiginjō at an affordable price released under the brewery's "Kiwami" brand. It has a cleaner, crisper taste than Junmai Daiginjō Kiwami and a higher acidity than conventional daiginjō. It has a refreshing taste with a good balance of spiciness.

Homare Shuzō ("Aizuhomare") is located in Kitakata, Fukushima Prefecture. In 1918, Karahashi Kōsaku (唐橋幸作), a rice wholesaler who had been running a miso and koji manufacturing business, took over an existing sake brewery and renamed it Kano Sake Brewery (加納酒造株式会社). Later, to expand the industry, the company moved to its current location in Matsuyama, Kitakata City, and changed its name to Karahashi Sake Brewery (唐橋酒造場) and later Homare Sake Brewery (ほまれ酒造). The "Aizu Homare" brand (会津ほまれ) bears the name "Aizu" to make the name of Aizu sake known all over Japan. At that time, it was quite uncommon to use hiragana for sake brands. The typeface of "Aizu Homare" was created by Tenrai Hidai (比田井天来氏), a modern calligrapher born in Nagano Prefecture.

Aizuhomare's Daiginjo and Junmai Daiginjo are distributed via several Japanese supermarket chains. The brewery's Kiwami brand offers flawless quality for a good value (cospara, as they say in Japan). It has a fruity nose with hints of strawberries, green apples, and melon, suggesting a promise of sweetness. It is clean and crisp, with a slightly higher acidity than expected for a daiginjo—a sweet mouthfeel complemented by a spicy and bitter finish. While enjoyable as a standalone evening drink, it also pairs deliciously with food.
