Endo Comet Bennett Nakatori Junmai Daiginjō (彗 ベネット 中取り純米大吟醸)

Endo's Comet Bennett Nakatori Junmai Daiginjō (彗 ベネット 中取り純米大吟醸) is the pinnacle of its "Comet" (彗) series. The Bennett is made of Miyamanishiki rice grown in Nagano and milled to 50%. The pressing of the moromi mash consists of three stages: the first run is called arabashiri (あらばしり), the middle run nakatori (中取り), nakagumi (中汲み) or nakadare (中取り), and the final pressing seme (責め). Nakatori has an excellent balance of flavour and is generally referred to as the 'best part' of sake, hence used for premium products. Bennett is made exclusively of nakatori. It has a rich and fruity aroma and a well-balanced, beautiful taste. Recommended serving chilled.

Located in Suzaka, Nagano Prefecture, the brewery was founded in 1864 for the local Suzaka clan and began to supply sake to the clan's head. Since then, from the second to the fifth generation, we have inherited the intention of the first brewer, Endo Tokusaburo (遠藤徳三郎), to make delicious sake and continue to make sake to brew and nurture. Although our leading brand, "Yoro Masamune," has been awarded the Medal with Yellow Ribbon, we could not take advantage of the sake boom in the 1970s, and as a small brewery, Endo struggled to keep their quality. In 1982, the sixth generation, Endo Shuzaburo (遠藤秀三郎), became the head of the brewery at the young age of 21. At this time, there were only three employees. While starting to improve existing products, the brewery launched one of its leading brands, "Keiryū", in 1988. New brands followed, including the still-popular Asashibori, Domuroku, Naotora and Comet.

In 1993, the brewery was awarded the "Nagano Prefecture Sake Competition Governor's Prize" (長野県清酒品評会県知事賞 Nagano-ken seishu hinpyō-kai kenchiji-shō). In 2004, Endo won its first gold medal in the "Monde Selection". In 2014, the brewery celebrated its 150th anniversary.

Endo's Bennett is the top sake in their Comet line. All 'comets' are based on characters from the Gundam anime series. It has a floral scent with fruity notes and is very mild when chilled and a tad richer at room temperature, well-rounded, with a pleasant sweetness. Overall, it is very mild and elegant, with hidden umami, perhaps a little too mild for those preferring more robust flavours.
