Shisui is 100% "Izayoi", an ancient black rice grown in Niigata Prefecture.
Here, the rice is not polished and 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 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 elegance and deep length in the mouth.

Our advice: Out of the ordinary in all respects, it matches exactly like a red wine.
The natural tannins of sake go well with rich tomato sauces and hearty meat dishes.

Built in 1912, Shiokawa House is made of wood and earth, just like traditional sake breweries. The house has 25 refrigirated sake vats, specially designed for the production of luxury sake.
These vats are used to prepare sake in the winter, and to preserve it in the summer.
Taking advantage of Niigata's favorable climate, the water used to make sake is semi-hard water from the water table filtered by the sands of the Niigata dunes.
However, the know-how of the Shiokawa House is not only a guarantee of tradition, but also opens up to the future of sake, always looking for new tastes, using ingredients from local farms, or developing sake culture internationally.
