Gin no Iroha
This Junmai Daiginjo is produced with 100% “Gin no Iroha” sake rice grown in Miyagi Prefecture.
To highlight the flavor of this unique sake rice, we brew this sake with a yeast that produces an understated aroma.
The light and clear flavor is representative of the comparatively low number of amino acids present in the sake, making it the sharpest of the Atagonomatsu brand.
Gin no Iroha
“Gin no Iroha” (Tohoku Sake No. 218) is Miyagi Prefecture’s second original sake rice. This rice debuted 20 years after the birth of “Kura no Hana”, Miyagi Prefecture’s first original sake rice.
“Gin no Iroha” is a combination of Miyagi Prefecture’s high yield “Genki Maru” and Yamagata Prefecture’s original sake rice “Dewa no Sato”. This cross results in a high yield hybrid that is cold resistant, suitable for sake, and perfect for Miyagi Prefecture’s climate. This large elliptical rice grain also features a high shinpaku rate.
Why “Gin no Iroha”?
The character 吟, read “Gin” derives from the sake related terms “ginmi” or “ginjo”. いろは, read “Iroha” is a reference to the soft and elegant impression of Princess Iroha, the eldest daughter of Lord Date Masamune.
