Tōa Sake Mujinamo (東亜 貉藻)

Tōa Sake Mujinamo (東亜 貉藻) is made with Sainokagayaki rice harvested in Hanyū, Saitama. It has a slightly light and dry taste that goes well with dishes like sashimi, salted fish, hot pots and red meat. It is recommended to serve it heated, chilling it will further enhance its crisp texture.

Mujinamo (貉藻) refers to a rare carnivorous plant known as 'Aldrovanda vesiculosa' or 'Waterwheel plant,' which was first discovered in Japan in 1890 by the botanist Makino Tomitaro Makino. The plant has no roots and floats in the water. It used to grow wild in various parts of Japan; however, nowadays, there is only one natural habitat left at Hōzōjinuma Mujinamo Jikiji (宝蔵寺沼ムジナモ自生地), a swamp in Hanyū, where Tōa Sake Brewery is located. The species is protected as 'natural monument' (国指定の天然記念物).

Mujinamo has a nose of green and herbs, an intense herbal flavour, and a medium-dry, relatively light body. It is recommended to be consumed atsukan (warmed). As such, very smooth and mild, with a slight bitterness and a mildly spicy finish.
