In 1907 (Meiji era 40), when the Emperor Taisho, who was then ruling the Eastern Palace, went on a tour in the San-in region. He presented a bottle of sake to his chamberlain, the Marquis Takamasa Kido, which was praised as “the most beautiful sake under the sky”. In addition, the seventh-generation head of the family was a great believer in Mt. Myoken, and he treasured the emblem of “Kiritake Yawase Cross”. Later, these two emblems were combined to form the “ Juji Asahi +旭日“ (which means + Rising Sun) emblem, which is still being used today.

The brewery is situated in Izumo, the city in Shimane Prefecture for as long as 150 years. Izumo is uniquely blessed by magnificent nature and had nurtured a brewing culture since the ancient period. Our sake is brewed with the rice grown in the mountain and pure water originated from the Kitayama Mountains. We seek to produce sake with a charm that only this brewery in the land of Izumo can produce.

Juji Asahi Shuzo Ororchi No Mai Junmai-Shu Clear Nama R2 (2020)

$75.00
We used Koshihikari rice grown in Sada-machi, Izumo City. The aim of the brewing process was to bring out the "character" of Koshihikari rice. This sake is dry, clean and refreshing.  Its subtle aroma and umami flavour is excellent for food pairing. Recommended to serve at 5℃~15℃, and pair with sushi.

Juji Asahi Shuzo Konarezake Junmai Ginjo Genshu Jujiasahi Yamadanishiki 21by 2010

$108.00
A Junmai Ginjo, which is slowly and elegantly brewed with Yamada Nishiki, left to mature at well-controlled room temperature in the brewery to slowly develop its depth of flavour. A prominent depth of colour and flavour that cannot be found in a new sake. Deep in colour, it displays sweetness characteristic of an aged sake.  The right intensity of acidity also gives the sake a depth in its flavour. Recommended to serve at 15℃~45℃, and pair with rich flavoured stews and Chinese food.

Yamada Nishiki rice is polished to less than half its original size and fermented slowly and carefully. Every drop was diligently collected out from the dripping back. It is a superb shizuku-shu (dripped sake), which is semi dry, crisp and refreshing with pronounced umami flavours. Recommended to serve at 10℃~25℃, and pair with light appetizers. Comes with a wooden box.
