One of the central pillars of the Masumi brand. Subtle astringency and a fragrance reminiscent of young Fuji apples. A superbly balanced dry sake. This is called “karakuchi”, which means “dry”, but there is also a pleasant sweetness to this sake. It is subtly fragrant, thanks to yeast number 9, and comes off as a light, dry, easy drinking sake.
The perfect way to introduce new friends to the sake world. Sanka means “mountain flowers,” and with a flavor and fragrance as fresh as an alpine spring, this sake continues to win people over from New York to Hong Kong. Sanka has a fresh, natural flavor that builds from cup to cup. An exceptionally easy-going super premium daiginjo.
An award-winning daiginjo bursting with regional character. Brewed in the Yamahai tradition using locally-grown Miyama Nishiki rice and Masumi’s own yeast # 7, Nanago has a mild fragrance and a full flavor distinguished by well-balanced acidity and a clean finish.
Made specially for the National Competition, Yumedono has a solid-gold record of wins. As a competition sake, Yumedono has been put entirely into the hands of the brewing staff. The result is a hand-crafted sake with very high fragrance, pleasant sweetness and mild acidity that makes an impression from the first cup.
Masumi’s ideal junmai sake. A comfortable Junmai with perfect balance. Masumi’s ideal Junmai. Mellow and mild-mannered in all aspects, with subtle, organic flavors and a hint of rice’s sweetness. The brewery aimed to keep a hint of the original rice flavors, and the soft water used in the Suwa kura was perfect for this.
Newly upgraded. Masumi’s new higher standard. As of April 2014, Tokusen has undergone a dramatic image re-make to become a lighter and more fragrant sake. Enjoy it chilled or gently warmed. The brewery made this new Tokusen more fragrant and lighter. Even though it is still in the standard category, it has a ginjo-like delicacy of character.
