"Living with the Tokis (ibis)" of Sado is the name of this Junmai Ginjo defender of the environment whose production is certified as respecting the island's natural heritage. This Ginjo is made with Koshitanrei rice from Sado polished to 55%.
In order to protect the habitat of the tokis, Obata is so environmentally conscious when growing rice that it has been called "certified rice that respects the natural habitat of the toki". In addition, Sado's own rice cultivation technique uses the nutrients contained in oyster shells to enrich the irrigation water in the rice fields.
Caracteristics : On the nose, powerful herbal nuances. The palate is dry and spicy.
Serving suggestions : This sake goes very well with white fish, seaweed and vegetables, but we recommend to try it first with oysters.
Consume in moderation.
Alcohol should not be consumed by pregnant women.
The Obata Brewery
Located on the island of Sado in the prefecture of Niigata, the know-how of Obata and the manufacturing techniques of its flagship sake, the "Manotsuru" have been handed down from generation to generation since its creation in 1892. The Obata Brewery is the pride of the sake of the island of Sado, thanks to the 3 pillars of "sake-zukuri", as primary as elusive: water, rice, and man.
The Brewery turned 125 in 2017, and Mrs Obata Rumiko, in charge of the house, is the only woman at the table of the presidents of Niigata's 90 sake producers.
Rumiko Obata, 5th heiress of the Obata house, is probably the only female headmistress of a kura among the 90 sake houses in Niigata prefecture. Mrs. Obata is actively involved in promoting the island of Sado and its wealth, particularly through education on sake making.
The Toki, Japanese ibis, once populated Sado Island in large numbers. In particular with the "Toki-friendly" certification of its sake, Obata fights for the protection of this species and the island's natural environment.
