Product also available in store:
28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
Shisui is made 100% from "Izayoi", an ancient black rice grown in the Niigata prefecture.
Here, the rice is not polished but the whole grain (including the bran) is used, which is reminiscent of an older style of sake production. This method also keeps all the essential nutrients intact, and gives the sake its bright purple color, similar to that of red wine. Black rice is full of nutrient-rich polyphenols (glycoside) and antioxidants that help the body fight disease. The unique characteristics of this ancient wild rice offer an elegant, long-lasting taste in the mouth.

Our advice: Like red wine, the natural tannins of the sake go well with rich tomato sauces and hearty meat dishes.

Built in 1912, Shiokawa Brewery is made out of wood and earth, just like other traditional sake breweries. It has 25 refrigerated sake tanks, specially designed for the production of luxury sakes. These tanks are used for the preparation of sake in winter and for its preservation in summer. Taking advantage of Niigata's climate, its sakes are made from semi-hard groundwater filtered by the sand of the Niigata dunes. However, Shiokawa's know-how is not only traditional, but also opens up to the future of sakes: always in search of new flavours through ingredients from local farms, or by developing sake culture on an international level.
Consume in moderation.
