Shōtoku Brewery, founded in 1645 by the Kimura family, was initially located in Rakuchu (洛中), Kyōto, and was in the Taishō period moved to Fushimi, one of Japan's foremost sake areas renowned for its soft water. In 1943, four Fushimi breweries merged into Kyōei Shuzō Co., Ltd. (共栄酒造株式会社). Later, the company name was changed to Shōtoku Brewery (招德酒造株式会社), the brand name brand the brewery uses to this day. Shōtoku has long believed that junmai sake is the true form of sake and has been brewing it since the 1960s. Nurtured by Kyōto's unique food culture and traditions, it is characterised by a mild aroma and soft taste and can be served warm or cold.

Gentle ginjo aroma with hints of dried fruits and caramel and intense notes of alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body, slightly viscous with lovely umami and an earthy sweetness that melts into refreshing acidity and tanginess. We also heated it (to around 45 degrees), and it was smooth as satin.
