Koshinohakugan Junmai Koshihikari
Product available in store : 28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
A delicious Junmai sake made from Koshihikari rice, the king of table rice. This slightly luxurious sake, dry and light in the mouth, brings out the umami of Koshihikari to the full.
Founded in 1988, the Nakagawa House has focused from the outset on a quest for taste, rather than profitability, brewing its sake with high-quality Niigata rice, which it polishes in-house, and crystal-clear groundwater from the Nishiyama mountain range, which stretches between the Sea of Japan and the Shinano River.
This spirit is always present, in the constant search for a sake that does not take precedence over the taste of the food, and that can be drunk without weariness. Despite the number of sake houses in Niigata and the supply available, this approach has won over many fans, and that is why the sake from the Nakagawa house is mainly consumed in Niigata, especially the Koshi no Hakugan series, which is so popular that no one in Nagaoka is unaware of it. Outside the prefecture, on the other hand, it is seen as a rare sake, and has also conquered a public of connoisseurs.
The other aspect that distinguishes the Nakagawa house is the youthfulness of its brewers. While many sake houses complain about the lack of manpower, the Nakagawa House, far from being one of the largest in Niigata, sees young people who fall in love with the taste of its sake and decide to come and work as brewers. So the brewery is a place brimming with life where veteran toji and young brewers work with the same heart.
