Ninki Ichi Green Ninki Organic Junmai Ginjō (人気一 グリーン人気オーガニック純米吟醸)

Ninki Ichi Green Ninki Organic Junmai Ginjō (人気一 グリーン人気オーガニック純米吟醸) is an organic sake made from JAS organic rice polished to 60% and brewed in a wooden vat. JAS organic rice is safe and secure rice that has passed strict standards such as not using pesticides or chemical fertilizers for over three years. This product is certified organic in Japan, Canada COR (equivalency US NOP and Taiwan), and the EU. It's also brewed with the renowned underground water of Mount Adatara, which contains well-balanced minerals. It is slowly fermented at low temperatures in traditional vats made of century-old cedarwood. After being removed from the vat, it is then single-pasteurized and bottled. Its flavour is refreshing, not too rich, and has a good balance of sweetness and dryness. Best enjoyed lukewarm or chilled in a glass.

Ninki Brewery, founded in 1897, is located in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture. Nihonmatsu overlooks the Abukuma mountain range to the east and the Adatara mountains to the west. The underground water of Mt. Adatara, where the thawed water soaked into the soil to be polished by rocks over forty years, turned it into a clear water source containing many minerals. It is the most suitable water for sake brewing. Ninki Brewery uses locally grown rice and focuses exclusively on producing ginjō sake. Ginjō sake is made by slow fermentation at low temperatures when the yeast is less active.

There were many breweries in Nihonmatsu in the past. However, in the early Showa period, several of them disappeared, including the Naganuma family's Hanakasumi (花霞), the birthplace of tōji Kotaro Takamura's wife, Chieko. Among them was a brand called "Ninki" (人氣), considered a befitting trade name for sake because it translates to "brewed by people, with all their energy". The brewers also wanted to express their aim of striving for the highest quality by adding "Ichi" (number one) to their company name: "Ninki-Ichi".

Intensive floral nose with spicy notes of alcohol. Sweet flavour, silky texture, and bulging umami accompanied by slight astringency that confines both sweetness and umami; the cedar vats give the Green Ninki a taste of wooden incense. Solid fruitiness with an abrupt clean finish.
